Total and its partners ExxonMobil and Oil Search have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Independent State of Papua New Guinea defining the key terms of the Gas Agreement for the Papua LNG project.

The MoU was signed during the Asia Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) in Port Moresby, in presence of Peter O’Neill, Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea, and Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of Total. The proposed Gas Agreement is expected to be finalised by 1Q19.

The Papua LNG Project will encompass two LNG trains of 2.7 million tpy each and will be developed in synergy with the existing PNG LNG project facilities. Total and its partners have agreed to launch the first phase of the engineering studies of this project.

“The MoU signed by the State of PNG and the partners of the Papua LNG project is an important step in all the parties’ commitment to the project”, said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of Total. “Investing in LNG is a long term enterprise and our objective is to be able to make the project as competitive as possible. Total being the second-largest world private LNG player, we are fully committed to the success of the Papua LNG project, which benefits from a favourable geographical location close to Asian markets.”
