The agreement with TotalEnergies was reached during Lebanese energy minister Walid Fayad’s visit to Paris, where he met the French group’s CEO Patrick Pouyanne.

The company also expressed willingness to supply Lebanon with the required infrastructure to store and regasify liquid gas, the ministry statement said.
