ConocoPhillips has been selected as a partner in QatarEnergy’s North Field South (NFS) LNG expansion project with a 6.25% stake awarded to one of the world’s largest independents.

ConocoPhillips is the third company to sign on to the two-train, 16 million metric ton/year (mmty) capacity liquefied natural gas project planned from Qatar’s prolific North Field. Qatar Energy offered 25% ownership to international partners, while retaining 75%. Shell plc and TotalEnergies were previously awarded stakes in the project.

The partnership was announced at a Sunday ceremony in Doha where ConocoPhillips CEO Ryan Lance signed an agreement with QatarEnergy CEO Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi.
