TotalEnergies boosts U.S. LNG presence

Buying into Eagle Ford play

TotalEnergies will acquire the 20% interest held by Lewis Energy Group in the Dorado leases operated by EOG Resources (80%) in the Eagle Ford shale gas play.

Located in Texas, the Dorado field will enable TotalEnergies to increase its net U.S. natural gas production by 50 million cubic feet a day (Mcf/d) in 2024, with the potential for an additional 50 Mcf/d by 2028. The field has an emission intensity of around 10 kg CO2e/boe. In 2023, TotalEnergies’ net U.S. natural gas output reached around 340 Mcf/d (450 Mcf/d technical production).

With over 10 million tons (Mt) in 2023, TotalEnergies was the number one exporter of U.S. LNG, thanks to its 16.6% stake in the Cameron LNG plant in Louisiana and several long-term purchasing agreements. The company’s LNG export capacity will reach 15 Mt/y by 2030 following the start-up of the first phase of the Rio Grande LNG project in Texas, currently under construction.

“This acquisition strengthens our production of natural gas in the United States, contributing to reinforce TotalEnergies’ LNG integration with a low cost and low emission upstream gas feed,” said Nicolas Terraz, president, Exploration & Production at TotalEnergies. “We are pleased to partner with EOG Resources, an operator recognized for its strong technical expertise.”
