Total and ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India have signed an agreement for the supply of up to 500,000 tonnes of liquefied natural gas per year until 2026. The LNG will be sourced from Total’s global portfolio and offloaded either in Dahej or Hazira LNG Terminal, on the West Coast of India. AM/NS India will use the LNG to run its steel and power plants located in Hazira in Gujarat state. Total’s Senior Vice President LNG Mr Thomas Maurisse said “The supply of LNG will contribute to the reduction of AMNS’s carbon emissions, in line with Total’s ambition to offer its customers energy products that emit less CO2 and to support them in their own low-carbon strategies.”
This agreement strengthens Total’s relationship with AMNS and contributes to the decarbonization of India’s steel industry, which still rely heavily on coal.
Total is the world's second largest privately owned LNG player, with a global portfolio of nearly 50 million tonnes per year by 2025 and a global market share of around 10%. Thanks to its interests in liquefaction plants in Angola, Australia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Russia and Qatar, the company markets LNG on all world markets.
