April 14 (Renewables Now) - French oil and gas company Total SA (EPA:FP) and Germany's Siemens Energy AG (ETR:ENR) on Tuesday announced an agreement to collaborate on solutions to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, including integration of renewable energy in liquefied natural gas (LNG) production.

The partners will focus their efforts on natural gas liquefaction facilities and related power generation. The solutions they plan to develop include combustion of clean hydrogen in gas turbines, competitive all-electrical liquefaction, optimised power generation, renewable energy integration in liquefaction facilities' power system and enhancement of their efficiency.

The latest technical collaboration agreement comes after in June 2020 the two companies announced plans to study potential designs for liquefaction and power generation facilities to lower CO2 emissions from LNG production.
