ENGIE liquefied natural gas (LNG) activities
Following recent media speculation, ENGIE confirms it has launched a strategic review of its upstream and midstream LNG activities (liquefaction, transport and international trading of LNG). Its downstream LNG activities, such as regasification and LNG ex-terminal sales, are not part of the review, the company said in its press release.
At this stage, there can be no certainty as to whether the discussions with the counterparties, including Total, will lead to any agreement.
Any agreement would have to be approved by the relevant governance bodies and the relevant employee representative bodies would have to be consulted.
ENGIE is committed to taking on the major challenges of the energy revolution, towards a world more decarbonised, decentralised and digitalised. The Group aims to become the leader of this new energy world by focusing on three key activities for the future: low carbon generation in particular from natural gas and renewable energy, energy infrastructure and efficient solutions adapted to all its customers (individuals, businesses, territories, etc.). Innovation, digital solutions and customer satisfaction are the guiding principles of ENGIE’s development. ENGIE is active in around 70 countries, employs 150,000 people worldwide and achieved revenues of €66.6 billion in 2016.
