TotalEnergies to design Feed for US$12 billion PNG's Papua LNG

 TOTAL ENERGIES plans to launch this month its front-end-engineering design (Feed) study for its US$12 billion (about K41.48 billion) Papua LNG project in Gulf, an official says.

The company’s senior vice-president Julien Pouget, who is in the country for a short visit this week, told the staff yesterday that TotalEnergies was sticking to its initial plan to have the Feed study ready this month.

“Last time we said we were on time with our target to launch the Feed study by June, and we are getting towards the end of June,” Pouget said.

“I can tell you that we are on track with this target, thanks to the great job performed by the engineering team and you too.

“It’s not fully done.

“There are some work still to be done in the coming weeks, but we are pretty sure that we can confirm that we will be on time for that.

“It means that the project was accelerating a lot in the last few months. It’s very important for all of us, because our contribution to the country will be very significant in the coming months and years, and this is already taking off together with our partners.

“I can also tell you that if all goes well with our partners Santos and ExxonMobil, it is a good foundation also for a successful project.”

He also stressed on the importance of safety at their workplace.

“As the project is progressing, and as many new people are arriving, I want a renewed focus on safety,” Ponget said.

“There were two accidents in last few months. One was serious.

“You have to ensure maximum focus on safety.”
