Total has signed a technical agreement with Siemens Energy to study sustainable solutions for reducing carbon dioxide emissions that is generated from liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities and associated power generation, a press release issued by Total announced.
According to the agreement, the two partners will combine their best-in-class technologies together as well as 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.
On this occasion, Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production at Total, expressed his pleasure for this agreement saying “this collaboration with Siemens Energy, a major player in the energy technology sector, brings many opportunities to further reduce the carbon footprint of our activities, especially in our strategic LNG business.”
“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” Breuillac noted.
For his part, Thorbjörn Fors, Executive Vice President of the Industrial Applications Division at Siemens Energy elaborated that “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.”
