Total partners Siemens Energy to reduce LNG emissions

The collaboration will focus on natural gas liquefaction facilities and associated power generation

Total and Siemens Energy have signed a Technical Collaboration Agreement to study sustainable solutions for CO2 emissions reduction in LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas).

The collaboration will focus on natural gas liquefaction facilities and associated power generation. Each partner will bring together their technologies and combine their know-how to deliver industrial-stage solutions such as combustion of clean hydrogen in gas turbines, competitive all-electrical liquefaction, optimized power generation, integration of renewable energy in liquefaction plants’ power system and their efficiency enhancement.

Arnaud Breuillac, President - Exploration & Production, Total said, “The development of low-carbon LNG will contribute to meet the growth in global energy demand whilst reducing the carbon intensity of the energy products consumed. Reducing its carbon footprint is essential for LNG to play its role fully in the energy transition.”

“We are pleased to partner with Total as one of the main players in the LNG value chain to explore how we can competitively reduce the carbon footprint of brownfield and greenfield LNG projects,” said Thorbjorn Fors, Executive Vice President - Industrial Applications Division, Siemens Energy.

“The agreement is a next step, following our announcement last June to collaborate together and conduct studies exploring possible liquefaction and power generation plant designs to help decarbonize the production of LNG,” added Fors. 

Total is the world's second largest privately owned LNG player, with a global portfolio of nearly 50 Mtpa by 2025 and a global market share of around 10%. The Group benefits from strong and diversified positions throughout the LNG value chain: gas production and liquefaction, LNG transportation and trading, and contribution to the development of the LNG industry for maritime transport.
