Total Receives First Shipment from NLNG Train 4

Total says that its first cargo of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from Nigeria LNG (NLNG) train 4 left Bonny Island bound for Spain, as part of the 1.15 million metric tons per annum (MTPA) sales and purchase agreement signed between Total Gas & Power Ltd. and NLNG to off take LNG from trains 4, 5 and 6.

NLNG's Train 4 started production in fourth quarter 2005 and Train 5 is currently being prepared to start in February. These two trains will increase NLNG's production capacity by 8 MTPA to over 17 MTPA. Train 6, currently under construction, will further increase the plant capacity by 4 MTPA.

Total holds a 15% stake in NLNG, a Nigerian Joint Venture company whose other shareholders are the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (49%), Shell (25.6%) and ENI (10.4%).
