Total Will Operate Lvory Coast LNG Project
The CI-GNL (Ivory Coast LNG
) consortium led by Total
has been awarded the rights to build and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) re-gasification terminal
in Ivory Coast with a capacity of 3 million tons per year.
The decision announced by the Government of the Ivory Coast on October 4th was followed by the signature of the shareholders’ agreement in Abidjan between Total, which will operate the project with a 34% interest, national companies PetroCI (11%) and CI Energies (5%) as well as SOCAR (26%), Shell (13%), Golar (6%) and Endeavor Energy (5%).
Total will use the terminal to supply LNG volumes from its global portfolio in proportion to its participating interest in the project. The re-gasification terminal project is expected to become operational by mid 2018.
