Fossil Energy – TotalEnergies in Oman
TotalEnergies announces the start of gas production from onshore Block 10 in the Sultanate of Oman as well as an agreement with Oman LNG for a long-term LNG purchase contract.
The start of the gas production is from the Mabrouk North-East field in the onshore Block 10.
Gas production is expected to reach 500 million standard cubic feet per day by mid-2024. The produced gas will supply the Omani gas network, feeding both local industry and LNG export facilities. This production start-up follows the signing of the concession agreement in December 2021.
TotalEnergies has also signed an agreement with Oman LNG for the purchase of 0.8 million metric tons of LNG per year over a period of ten years starting from 2025.
This new contract will contribute to TotalEnergies’ LNG integrated portfolio and reinforce its flexibility, by allowing to address both the European and Asian markets. This LNG will contribute to the reduction of emissions into the atmosphere since it will allow the electric utilities who purchase this gas to substitute it for coal, thus avoiding CO2 emissions (a natural gas power plant releases about half as much CO2 as a coal power plant).
