Saad al-Kaabi, who is president of QatarEnergy and also Qatar’s minister of state for energy, said the selection process for partners has been finalised and subsequent signings could be announced as soon as next week.

No company will have a stake higher than TotalEnergies, he added. France-based TotalEnergies Chief Executive Patrick Pouyanne said the company will have 25 percent of one train – or liquefaction and purification facility – in the project.

The North Field Expansion plan includes six LNG trains that will ramp up Qatar’s liquefaction capacity from 77 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) to 126 mtpa by 2027.

Oil majors have been bidding for four trains of the North Field East expansion, with the other two trains part of a second phase, North Field South.

Al-Kaabi said Qatar has a unified approach, where all four trains are considered one unit. TotalEnergies has a 25 percent stake in one virtual train, which gives it about 6.25 percent of the whole four trains.

“We had announced that we are no longer investing in any new project in Russia, so the signing of this project in Qatar is important for us,” said Pouyanne.
