Exploration & Production in the United Kingdom

Total is one of the largest oil and gas operators in the United Kingdom. Production comes from three major operated hubs:
- The Alwyn area in the northern North Sea, has been in production since 1987 and is now 100% owned and operated by Total.
- The Elgin/Franklin area in the Central Graben, which uses high-pressure/high-temperature technology in one of the most promising areas of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS). Total operates these fields with a 46% interest.
- The Laggan-Tormore area, West of Shetland, which started production in 2016 and represents Total’s latest investment in the UK offshore oil and gas industry. Total operates these fields with a 60% interest.
We also own interests in the Bruce (43.3%), Keith (25%) and Markham (7.35%) fields.

Our Group has acquired interests in a number of licenses across the East Midlands in order to assess the potential for shale gas development projects.

Gas and Power in the United Kingdom

Our UK affiliate is one of the largest energy traders in the world. It is the United Kingdom’s largest provider of gas and power, serving some 100,000 industrial and commercial customers.

As part of the Qatari project Qatargas II, we acquired an 8.35% interest in the South Hook regasification terminal in Wales.

We have transmission capacity in the Interconnector, the cross-Channel gas pipeline linking the United Kingdom to Belgium.

Refining & Chemicals in the United Kingdom

Total owns and operates 100% of the Lindsey Oil Refinery, which incorporates some of the most advanced refining and conversion processes in Europe and has a capacity over 110,000 barrels per day.

As a world class supplier of quality fuels, the refinery has a comprehensive logistics infrastructure, including rail and road loading facilities and a high-capacity pipeline connection to the greater London area. Storage facilities are located at strategic sites throughout the United Kingdom. Gasoline and diesel for road vehicles, and specialty products such as fuel oil, bitumen, kerosene and aviation fuel, account for the bulk of the refinery’s output.

Our Group is involved in specialty chemicals through our affiliates: Stop-choc and Pamargan, both part of the Hutchinson group (elastomers processing), which has operations in Slough, Berkshire and Telford.
