Production from Papua LNG could begin in 2024, Business Advantage PNG has reported Jean-Marc Noiray, managing director of Total E&P PNG, as saying.

Total is looking to start a conclusive engineering study in Q2 2019 and to make an FID before 2020.

Appraisal drilling at the Elk-Antelope fields is now complete and Total believes they will sustain a 5.4 mtpa train over 15 years.

The company will work with the existing PNG LNG project to “create synergies”.
