Total-led consortium awarded rights to build LNG terminal in Ivory Coast

The CI-GNL consortium led by Total (TOT) has been awarded the rights to build and operate a liquefied natural gas re-gasification terminal in Ivory Coast with a capacity of 3M tons per year. The decision announced by the Government of the Ivory Coast on October 4th was followed by the signature of the shareholders' agreement in Abidjan between Total, which will operate the project with a 34% interest, national companies PetroCI (11%) and CI Energies (5%) as well as SOCAR (26%), Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) (13%), Golar (6%) and Endeavor Energy (5%). Total will use the terminal to supply LNG volumes from its global portfolio in proportion to its participating interest in the project. The re-gasification terminal project is expected to become operational by mid 2018. The project involves the construction of a terminal with a floating storage and re-gasification unit in Vridi, Abidjan area, and a pipeline connecting the FSRU to existing and planned power plants in Abidjan, as well as to regional markets connected to the Ivorian network. This will enable Ivory Coast to become the first regional LNG import Hub in West Africa, and to meet both regional and domestic demand.
