Award of Excellence  for Total at the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum

The Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) was held in Abu Dhabi from the 3rd until 7th December 2017 and Total has been bestowed with Award of Excellence for its R&D contribution on CO2 capture and storage.

Representing Total, Mr. Dominique COPIN, Senior Climate Advisor, received the award at the ceremony from H.E Dr. Matar Hamed Al Neyadi, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Energy and Industry, UAE for the results achieved on Lacq's integrated CCS (Capture and Storage of CO2) Pilot -Rousse.

This pilot, developed by Research & Development of the Exploration and production branch, is a European first. It tested a complete CO2 capture-transport-storage chain from a 30 megawatt thermal oxyfuel gas combustionboiler.

The CO2 injection phase started in 2010 and was completed in 2013, and since then, the pilot has become a world reference in the field of CCS. Its results are consolidated in an online REX book on the website of the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute (GCCSI).

Total very much appreciated the support of the CSLF for the completion of this project.
