Total, Siemens to work on slashing LNG emissions

France-based energy giant Total and a unit of German engineering firm Siemens have joined forces to study reducing emissions from LNG facilities.

Total said in a statement on Tuesday it signed a technical collaboration agreement with Siemens Energy.

In addition, the duo will study “sustainable solutions” for CO2 emissions reduction with a focus on natural gas liquefaction facilities and associated power generation, the statement said.

The partners will work on solutions such as combustion of hydrogen in gas turbines, competitive all-electrical liquefaction, optimized power generation, the integration of renewable energy in liquefaction plants’ power system and their efficiency enhancement.

“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,” said Arnaud Breuillac, president exploration and production at Total.

“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. Reducing its carbon footprint is essential for LNG to play its role fully in the energy transition,” he said.

Thorbjörn Fors, executive VP of the industrial applications division at Siemens Energy, said the duo would explore reducing the carbon footprint of brownfield and greenfield LNG projects.

The new agreement follows an announcement in June last year where the two firms agreed to work together and conduct studies exploring possible liquefaction and power generation plant designs to help decarbonize the production of LNG, he said.
