TotalEnergies starts studies for the Papua LNG project (Papua New Guinea)

The French oil and gas company TotalEnergies and its partners in the Papua LNG project have launched fully integrated front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies for the Papua LNG project located near Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea. The Papua LNG project is a partnership between TotalEnergies, who is the project operator (40.1%), ExxonMobil PNG (37.1%) and Santos (22.8%) and is expected to have a liquefaction capacity of up to 6 Mt/year of LNG.

Following pre-FEED studies, Papua LNG partners have selected a concept including four electrical LNG trains (e-trains) with a total capacity of 4 Mt/year. These trains will be built within the existing liquefaction plant of PNG LNG in Caution Bay (7 Mt/year, commissioned in 2014 and operated by ExxonMobil). Papua LNG has also secured the use of 2 Mt/year of additional liquefaction capacity in the existing trains of PNG LNG. The final investment decision (FID) is scheduled for end-2023 or early 2024, with the first production anticipated by the end of 2027 or early 2028.
