It was just after the Second World War and the discovery of the Hassi R'mel gas field in Algeria, that the Group took up the challenge of transporting natural gas in its liquid state and began to invest in research.

On March 28, 1965, the Jules Verne made its first delivery of LNG to the Le Havre terminal, creating the first LNG supply chain between France and Algeria, and giving birth to an industrial adventure in which the Group has always been at the forefront. This initial success and the innovations that have followed established ENGIE as an LNG industry pioneer and leader.

 With a fleet of 14 LNG carriers around the world, the Group is now Europe's leading importer of LNG, and operates the world's fourth-largest LNG portfolio, supplying 16.4 million metric tons per year.
