COTONOU, BENIN: Total has signed Gas Supply Agreement and Host Government Agreement with Societe Beninoise d’Energie Electrique (SBEE).

The agreement is for the development of a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import floating terminal and the supply of up to 0,5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of regasified LNG from Total’s global portfolio to Benin for 15 years, starting in 2021.

Total will develop and operate the regasification infrastructure that will comprise a floating storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) located offshore Benin and an offshore pipeline connexion to the existing and planned power plants in Maria Gleta.

“This project is in line with Total’s strategy to develop new gas markets by unlocking access to LNG for fast-growing economies. We are very pleased to have been entrusted by the Benin authorities to develop LNG imports and support a broad adoption of natural gas in the country. Access to LNG will help Benin to meet growing domestic energy demand and add more natural gas to the country’s current energy mix, hence reducing its carbon intensity,” said Laurent Vivier, Senior Vice President Gas at Total.
