Natural Gas: Supporting Cleaner Mobility

Natural gas is one of the best available options for shrinking the environmental footprint of transportation, both on land and at sea. We are developing this energy source to support new mobility uses.


LNG bunker reduces greenhouse gas emissions by around 20% compared with heavy fuel oil. It also significantly improves air quality by eliminating particulates and sulfur oxides. TotalEnergies is showing the way by upgrading our own shipping fleet with six LNG-powered tankers between now and 2023. We are also adding LNG bunker vessels to supply our customers. Since November 2020, TotalEnergies has chartered the world’s largest LNG bunker vessel, the Gas Agility, in the port of Rotterdam. Two others will follow by 2022 in Marseille and Singapore. Lastly, TotalEnergies has entered into the cruise industry with a contract to supply LNG to world cruise leader MSC Croisières.
