TotalEnergies has announced the start of gas production from the Mabrouk North-East field in the onshore Block 10. TotalEnergies holds a 26.55% interest in Block 10, with OQ holding 20% and Shell, operator, holding 53.45%. 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).TotalEnergies produces oil in Block 6 (4%), as well as LNG through its participation in the Oman LNG (5.54%)/Qalhat LNG (2.04% via Oman LNG) liquefaction complex with an overall capacity of 11.4 Mt/y. In 2021 TotalEnergies signed a Concession Agreement to develop natural gas resources on onshore Block 10 (26,55%) and in 2022 TotalEnergies signed an Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement (EPSA) to appraise Block 11 (22.5%). TotalEnergies also operates exploration Block 12 (80%) and contributes to the development of renewables in the country.
