Long untapped, unconventional oil and gas offer immense potential — at least as much as the total conventional oil reserves extracted since the start of the oil industry. But there are major technical, financial, environmental and social challenges to overcome to unlock these resources.

Thanks to extensive, long-standing experience on flagship projects, for example in South America, we’re currently staking our claim with regard to a variety of assets, with one objective: to develop them on a large scale so that we can position ourselves as a major player in unconventional resources. Such a strategy is based on state-of-the-art expertise, an active R&D program and a sustainable, responsible strategy for developing these resources.
