With half of the world’s oil and roughly 40% of its gas reserves, the Middle East is the epicenter of the global oil and gas scene. The birthplace of Total, it accounts for more than a fifth of our production. We have been a value-creating partner for the region’s countries and companies for nearly a century and are pursuing a strategy of excellence and innovation there.
And we continue to meet the challenges of this major strategic region, pivotal to the planet’s key geopolitical and economic issues. We continually optimize our portfolio, both by consolidating our historical positions and by seizing new opportunities, as ADNOC Onshore and ADNOC Offshore in the United Arab Emirates, Al Shaheen in Qatar or Waha in Libya.
At 2018 ADIPEC, our booth will highlight our commitment to affordable, reliable and clean energy. In doing so it will showcase technological advances such as Metis, our disruptive R&D project for the acquisition of seismic data; ALBION, a multi-scale geology project based on dynamic analogues; and also our cost-effective solution for marine environmental monitoring piloted at the ABK field using valvometry.
Also on display: our expertise in unconventional resources, with a new concession agreement just being signed with ADNOC to launch an unconventional gas exploration program in the high potential Diyab onshore play covering over 6.000 km² in Abu Dhabi.
