Feature Story

Our exploration and production operations are conducted in increasingly harsh and challenging conditions, including extreme cold, arid climates and isolated locations. Because autonomous robots able to operate at our onshore and offshore sites would strengthen the safety of our teams, Total partnered with the French National Research Agency (ANR) in December 2013 to launch the ARGOS Challenge.
