TotalEnergies will add a 1 MtCO2/year CCS feature to its Papua LNG project

The French oil and gas group TotalEnergies plans to add a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) feature to its 5.4 Mt/year Papua LNG project, located near Port Moresby in southern Papua New Guinea. The CCS project is expected to be operational from day one of gas production from the LNG project (expected in late 2027) and will allow TotalEnergies to bury nearly 1 Mt/year of carbon dioxide on the site. The CO2 in the gas reservoir will be pumped back into the ground during production, and once depleted, the reservoir will be used to store more CO2 from other nearby 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 (9.3 bcm/year, commissioned in 2014). The project is targeting a final investment decision (FID) around the end of 2023.
