Total at a Glance: A Global Energy Company

Total is a leading energy player on the international stage. Our facilities are located in various regions of the world, as are our shareholders. In 2012, we reorganized our operations to optimize their growth and development.

A Total Primer 

  • Fifth largest publicly-traded integrated international oil and gas company in the world1 
  • Total has the second largest capitalization on the Euronext Paris and the Euro zone :  €92.3 billion at December 31, 2012.
  • More than 97 000 employees.
  • Operations in more than 130 countries.
  • Oil and gas exploration and production operations in more than 50 countries.
  • Approximately 520,000 French individual shareholders.
  • 2012 sales: €200.06 billion.
  • 28.5% French shareholders and 29.6% shareholders from North America.
  • Chairman and Chief Executive Officer: Christophe de Margerie

An Integrated Business Model to Capture Internal Synergies

Total is a major energy operator, active in every segment of the oil and gas industry. We also produce chemicals and develop and market solutions involving new energies.

In early 2012, we reorganized our chemical, refining and petroleum product marketing activites into two business segments : Refining & Chemicals and Marketing & Services. The new configuration enables us to make the most of the industrial overlap between refining and petrochemicals, improving our performance. It also raises the profile of our sales and marketing activities.

As a consequence, Total is now organized around the following three business segments :

  • Upstream, which includes oil exploration and production and activities involving natural gas and new energies, mainly solar and biomass.

  • Refining & Chemicals, which comprises refining, petrochemicals, base chemicals, fertilizers, specialty chemicals (rubber resins, adhesives, electroplating), and oil and gas trading and shipping activities.

  • Marketing & Services, which covers the supply and marketing of petroleum products. Since July 2012, it includes the activities of New Energies.
