Total has inked a five-year deal to supply up to 500,000 tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year to India’s ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel (AMNS), according to a press release. 

The LNG will be delivered to either Dahej or Hazira LNG Terminal, on the West Coast of India. AMNS will use the LNG to run its steel and power plants located in Hazira, Gujarat state. The deal does not only contribute to AMNS’s reduction of carbon emissions, but it also aligns with Total’s aim to provide energy products that emit less carbon dioxide (CO2) and to support them in their own low-carbon strategies.

Thomas Maurisse, Senior Vice President LNG at Total, commented on the deal: “We are pleased to partner with AMNS and to supply the growing industrial LNG demand in India, a country that aims to more than double the share of natural gas in its energy mix by 2030 compared to today.”
