Our Exploration & Production activities demand expertise that covers the complete oil and gas value chain, from exploration to production and from field development through to the dismantling of installations at the end of a field’s producing life.

Backed by know-how honed through decades of experience, our teams continually develop new tools, techniques and methods to optimize our production. Starting with prospecting for promising new acreage, our exploration strategy is based on close integration of our state-of-the-art expertise in the geosciences, reservoir engineering and drilling. For Reservoir Management, our teams optimize all predictive and operational decisions relating to potential – and subsequently confirmed – reservoirs.  Our drilling teams can claim historical expertise recognized throughout the industry and spanning the entire life of our fields, regardless of the type of acreage and geological context. 

Sismage - Exploration & Production - Total


It takes a thorough understanding of the subsurface to discover new resources. Our expertise has enabled us to prospect in increasingly complex environments. Our goals: to reconcile audacity with risk management and achieve reliable reserve estimates.

Drilling & Wells

Our expertise is underpinned by an integrated chain of specialist disciplines. As drilling moves into ever-more complex environments, the overriding goal of our teams remains unchanged: to drill faster, lower drilling costs and never compromise on safety.
