The company delivered a total of 136,000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas to the Zhuhai LNG terminal, in China’s Guangdong Province.

Foran Energy, is a local gas distributor in Foshan City. The company’s main business involves city gas distribution, gas pipeline construction and operation, Total said in a brief statement through its social media channels.

The company commercializes more than 2 Bcm of natural gas annually.

With rapid economic development, China continues further along the road of energy transformation, meaning that demand for lower-carbon energy compared to coal, such as natural gas, is surging.

Total is the world’s second-largest privately owned LNG player, with a global portfolio of nearly 50 Mtpa by 2025 and a global market share of around 10 per cent.
