Deep offshore accounts for 44% of our operated production and is a strategic and fast-growing segment for Total. Although our developments were initially concentrated in the Gulf of Guinea, we are extending our geographic reach, particularly in the Americas, which will represent 70% of our Yet-To-Find by year-end 2018.

Historically a pioneer and now a leader in the deep offshore, our strength for the past 50 years has stemmed from our momentum of ongoing innovation. Credited with some of the industry’s major milestones, we strive to sharply lower the development and production costs of these projects, invent new technologies to ensure asset integrity, facilitate hydrocarbons transport, and more.
