Total has inaugurated yesterday its revamped Carling – Saint-Avold petrochemical complex in eastern France following three years of transformation works.
In September 2013, Total announced that it would adapt the Carling site, investing close to €200 million to upgrade existing facilities and build new, higher value-added units to access to high-potential markets.
