In South Korea, we have formed major partnerships with Kogas (Korea’s national natural gas company), covering, for example, the sale of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from our plants in Australia (Gladstone LNG) and Oman (Oman LNG).

We have signed a 20-year agreement with Kogas to purchase LNG from Train 3 at the Sabine Pass gas terminal, located in Louisiana in the United States.

Total and Kogas have also signed a three-year agreement to sell LNG in South Korea as from 2017.

We market:
- Lubricants for land and marine applications
- Marine fuel 

We own a 50% stake in Hanwha Total Petrochemical, the joint-venture that operates the Daesan refining and petrochemicals complex. This complex, which has an integrated condensate splitter, is ideally located on the country's west coast, 400 kilometers from China, the main importer of its products.

We are also active in specialty chemicals through our affiliate Hutchinson, which designs and develops technologies for anti­vibration, fluid transfer and transmission systems.
