Total and Indonesia Sign MOU on CCS

Monday, December 17, 2007
Article Type: Summarized

Total has signed a Memorandum of Understanding between Total E&P Indonesia and the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

Under this agreement, which was concluded on the sidelines of the UN Climate Change Conference, Indonesia's Agency of Research and Development for Energy and Mineral Resources will be allowed access to data from Total's pilot project which is being implemented near Lacq in the SouthWest of France.

This project, one of the first in the world to include the whole chain from combustion to CO2 geological storage, is primarily intended to prove the technical feasibility of an integrated carbon capture and storage scheme.

It should enable Total to contribute to the fight against global warming, and provide an efficient solution to help limiting the footprint of Total's activities in Exploration and Production, Refining and Chemicals.

Indonesia will thereby be able to develop its technical and economical understanding of such a CO2 storage scheme, especially concerning the geological aspects.

In turn, this may assist the Indonesian Government to establish an appropriate regulatory framework for similar projects that maybe proposed in Indonesia.
