Total and CMA CGM sign LNG supply agreement

Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions and CMA CGM have signed an agreement covering the supply of around 300,000 tons of LNG per year for 10 years starting in 2020. This volume will fuel CMA CGM's nine newbuild container ships, scheduled for delivery beginning 2020 onwards.

In February 2017, CMA CGM and Total already signed a cooperation agreement to examine the most environmentally responsible propulsion solutions to meet the International Maritime Organization’s 2020 implementation date for new sulfur regulations.

Under this agreement, Total will provide a solution for LNG supply. The Group is currently considering chartering on long-term basis an LNG bunkering vessel that would not only deliver fuel to CMA CGM in Europe, but also to other customers in the same region.
