TotalEnergies SE is teaming up with Belgian start-up Tree Energy Solutions (TES) to build a synthetic natural gas plant that tentatively could be sited in Texas.

Fueled by carbon dioxide (CO2) and renewable hydrogen, the project as envisioned would produce 100,000-200,000 metric tons/year of electric natural gas, aka e-NG. 

“This synthetic fuel will contribute to the energy transition by helping our customers to decarbonize their activities, notably the ones that are difficult to electrify,” said TotalEnergies’ Stéphane Michel, president of Gas, Renewables & Power.
