Created in 1924 to enable France to play a key role in the great oil and gas adventure, TotalEnergies has always been driven by an authentic pioneering spirit. It has discovered some of the most productive fields in the world. Its refineries have created increasingly sophisticated products and its extensive distribution network has rolled out an ever-expanding range of services.
As for the Company’s culture, it has been forged on the ground, underpinned by an unwavering commitment to safety and performance. Throughout its long history, TotalEnergies was to frequently cross paths with two other oil companies, one French – Elf Aquitaine – and the other Belgian – Petroﬁna. Sometimes competitors, some-times partners, they gradually learned to work together. Their talent lay in being able to combine their strengths against their competitors. Such was the major challenge behind the mergers of 1999. They gave rise to the fourth oil major, a group built on a wealth of expertise and experience. Some 20 years later, Total became TotalEnergies, driven by a powerful ambition: to be a world-class player in the energy transition and to achieve, together with society as a whole, carbon neutrality in all its global activities by 2050.
TotalEnergies is a broad energy company that produces and markets energies on a global scale: oil and biofuels, natural gas and green gases, renewables and electricity.
