France – Total and Siemens Energy will study sustainable solutions for CO2 emissions reduction, focused on natural gas liquefaction facilities and associated power generation.
Each partner will bring together their best-in-class 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, the integration of renewable energy in liquefaction plants’ power system and their efficiency enhancement.
Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production at 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.”
