Paris - Total has divested its 27.5% interest in Fosmax LNG, operator of the Fos Cavaou liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, as a result of a competitive sale process to Elengy, Fosmax LNG’s shareholder with a 72.5% stake, that exercised its preemption right.
The consideration for the transaction is around $260 million, including acquisition of a shareholder loan and excluding any earnouts. This sale of non-strategic midstream infrastructure asset will contribute to Total’s objective of divesting five billion dollars in 2019-2020.
The Group retains its regasification capacity of around 5.5 million tons per annum (mtpa) at the terminal, equivalent to some 90% of its overall capacity. Total currently has regasification capacity of around 18 mtpa in Europe, allowing it to serve local market demand with LNG from the multiple sources in its world-class portfolio.
