TotalEnergies expands UAE footprint through Ruwais LNG

PARIS, 8 days ago

TotalEnergies joins, with a 10 per cent interest, the Ruwais LNG project alongside national company Adnoc (60 per cent), Shell (10 per cent), bp (10 per cent) and Mitsui (10 per cent).
 
Launched by Adnoc in June 2024, Ruwais LNG is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project located in Al Ruwais Industrial city, in Abu Dhabi.
 
The project includes two liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6 million tons per year. Start-up is expected in the second half of 2028.
 
The project applies the highest standards to reduce emissions: its full-electric liquefaction trains will be supplied with clean power by the UAE’s grid, making it one of the world’s lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants.
 
The facility will also leverage the latest technologies to enhance safety, drive efficiency and minimise emissions.
 
“We are delighted to join forces with our long-standing partner Adnoc on the development of this new LNG project. Last year at COP28, TotalEnergies and Adnoc both committed to lead the Oil & Gas Decarbonisation Charter to reduce the industry’s GHG emissions. With Ruwais LNG, we are putting this principle into practice with one of the world’s lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants, allowing natural gas to fully play its role of transition fuel", said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies. 
 
“We are delighted to welcome bp, Mitsui, Shell, and TotalEnergies as partners in ADNOC’s Ruwais LNG project, which will be one of the world’s lowest carbon-intensive LNG facilities. As natural gas demand continues to increase, this world-class project will enable us to provide more lower-carbon gas to meet growing demand today while helping the world transition to a cleaner energy future. Additionally, the project will accelerate development in Al Ruwais Industrial City, boost the local industrial ecosystem and create more skilled private sector jobs for UAE Nationals”, said Dr Sultan Al Jaber, Adnoc Managing Director and Group CEO. --OGN/TradeArabia News Service
