We have been active in Burkina Faso since 1954, where we have traditionally operated in the sale of petroleum products and, more recently, in the development of solar projects.
We lead several community outreach and environmental initiatives in the country, with a focus on the environment, sanitation, access to drinking water and the construction of schools and hospitals.

We have built a 15 megawatt-peak solar power plant in the Sahel region through our affiliate Total Eren, in which we have a stake of almost 30% (direct and indirect). The plant supplies power to the IAMGOLD Essakane gold mine under a 15-year purchase agreement. It is currently the biggest hybrid solar-thermal plant in the world.

We market polymers in Burkina Faso through traders.
