The CEO of energy major Total has announced plans to buy a share in projects aimed at constructing terminals for transferring liquefied natural gas (LNG), led by Russia’s biggest independent gas producer Novatek.

The volume of annual transshipments through the future terminal in Murmansk will be 20 million tons of LNG, while the Kamchatka hub is set to facilitate the transfer of 40 million tons of LNG per year.

 

Total and Novatek have an ongoing relationship in LNG. The French firm owns 19.4 percent of Novatek, and 21.6 percent of the Yamal LNG project led by the Russian company. Earlier this year, the two corporations reached a deal allowing Total to acquire up to 15 percent direct interest in all LNG enterprises led by Novatek on the Yamal and Gydan peninsulas in the Russian Arctic.

 

The joint project is expected to produce 19.8 million tons of LNG per year at full capacity. The project’s overall costs are currently estimated at $9 billion, nearly half the initial $21 billion planned and about a third of the $27 billion spent on the Yamal LNG.
