Total Acquires Interest in Nigeriaís Brass LNG Project

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/3/2006, Location: Africa

Total has acquired Chevronís interest in the Brass LNG project in the Niger Delta, 90 kilometres west of Bonny Island, Nigeria. Its current partners are NNPC, Eni and ConocoPhillips. Project sanction for the first two trains of Brass LNG is expected by year-end, with production scheduled to start up in 2011. Initially, two trains will be built, with a capacity of 5 million metric tons per year each, with most of the LNG intended for export to Europe and the U.S. The feed gas will be supplied from the partnersí productions, with Total accounting for a third, or 570 million cubic feet per day, over a period of at least 20 years.

The Brass LNG project will enable Total to step up the monetization of its Nigerian gas resources from onshore fields, offshore clusters under development and Oil Mining Leases (OML) 112 and 117, in which the Group recently acquired a 40% interest. The project is a further building block in Totalís strategy of growing and diversifying its production in Nigeria.

The interest is in addition to Totalís 15% stake in NLNG, whose capacity was recently expanded to nearly 18 million metric tons per year with the commissioning of Trains 4 and 5 earlier this year. Train 6, with a capacity of 4 million metric tons per year, is under construction and scheduled to come on stream in 2007.

A top-tier global LNG operator with equity sales of 7.7 million metric tons in 2005, Total is targeting average LNG production growth of 12% a year through 2010. The Brass LNG project will support the Groupís post-2010 LNG expansion and diversification.
