Joao Amaral -
Vice President, General Affairs, E&P, Africa
Total’s trademark is our integration into Africa, and our longtime presence. We have been here for over 90 years, I don’t think many companies can say the same.
We were able to evolve on the energy markets, being active in oil, in gas in the distribution business, today in renewables. Total, I would say, is a major and long-standing player in Africa.
Managing Director, Total E&P, Nigeria
Africa is a key continent: It represents one quarter of our Upstream production and one third of our capital expenditure. Africa is also a place where we have continued to invest, even in the low part of the cycle, with several major projects now coming to fruition.
Deputy Managing Director, Total E&P Nigeria
Commitment through the lower cycle has always been Total’s strength. That belief in our long-term affiliation with Africa, the long-term commitment, and knowing fully well that we are there for Africans, is what truly forms Total’s boldness in investing in the very lower part of the cycle, knowing fully well that it will never be permanent.
There is a bright future for oil and gas, and solar, and in fact all forms of energy in Africa. Africa is richly endowed with all these forms of energy. There definitely is room for further oil developments in Africa.
Total has shown its ability to adapt, to evolve with this continent. We mean to stay for another 90 years, or more!
