Following recent media speculation, ENGIE confirms it has launched a strategic review of its upstream and midstream LNG activities (liquefaction, transport and international trading of LNG). Its downstream LNG activities, such as regasification and LNG ex-terminal sales, are not part of the review.
At this stage, there can be no certainty as to whether the discussions with the counterparties, including Total, will lead to any agreement.
Any agreement would have to be approved by the relevant governance bodies and the relevant employee representative bodies would have to be consulted.
ENGIE is committed to taking on the major challenges of the energy revolution, towards a world more decarbonised, decentralised and digitalised. The Group aims to become the leader of this new energy world by focusing on three key activities for the future: low carbon generation in particular from natural gas and renewable energy, energy infrastructure and efficient solutions adapted to all its customers (individuals, businesses, territories, etc.). Innovation, digital solutions and customer satisfaction are the guiding principles of ENGIE’s development. ENGIE is active in around 70 countries, employs 150,000 people worldwide and achieved revenues of €66.6 billion in 2016. The Group is listed on the Paris and Brussels stock exchanges (ENGI) and is represented in the main financial indices (CAC 40, BEL 20, DJ Euro Stoxx 50, Euronext 100, FTSE Eurotop 100, MSCI Europe) and non-financial indices (DJSI World, DJSI Europe and Euronext Vigeo Eiris - World 120, Eurozone 120, Europe 120, France 20, CAC 40 Governance).
