Technip Energies will perform engineering for TotalEnergies’ Papua LNG project

The French engineering company Technip Energies, leader of a consortium alongside Australia’s Clough Group, will perform the front-end engineering design (FEED) for TotalEnergies’ 5.4 Mt/year Papua LNG project’s upstream production facilities in Papua New Guinea.

The Papua LNG project targets the production of the two main discoveries of Block PRL-15 gas fields. The gas produced by these fields will be transported by a 320 km onshore and offshore pipeline to the Caution Bay site, located near the capital Port Moresby, in order to be liquefied. This will be integrated into the existing PNG LNG facilities in Caution Bay. It also incorporates a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) scheme to remove the fields’ native CO2 and reinject it into the reservoirs.

The Papua LNG project is a partnership between Total E&P PNG, who is the project Operator (40.13%), and joint venture partners ExxonMobil PNG (37.03%) and Oil Search (22.84%). It is a 5.4 Mt/year (7.3 bcm/year) export project, consisting of two 2.7 Mt/year (3.65 bcm/year) liquefaction trains that would be developed in synergy with the existing 6.9 Mt/year PNG LNG plant (7.3 bcm/year, commissioned in 2014). The project is targeting a final investment decision (FID) around the end of 2023, and a start-up at the end of 2027.
