Total has a long presence and expertise in the United Kingdom with activities that span the entire energy chain from the exploration and production of crude oil and gas, energy trading and retailing and refining to the manufacture and marketing of petrochemicals.

A Major Energy Player

Total has been present in the United Kingdom for more than 50 years and is one of the country’s leading oil and gas operators, with equity production of 107,000 boe/d in 2015 and expected operated production of 260,000 boe/d in 2016.  Total’s production in the UK comes from several operated fields located offshore in three major zones the Alwyn/Dunbar area in the Northern North Sea, the Elgin/Franklin area in the Central Graben region and the new Laggan-Tormore hub in the West of Shetland area.  The innovative subsea-to-shore development concept, the first of its kind in the UK, has no offshore surface infrastructure and benefits from both improved safety performance and lower costs.  By opening up this new production hub in the deep offshore waters West of Shetland, Total is boosting the UK’s production capacity and Europe’s energy security.

Supporting Flexibility and Diversity of Supply

Incorporating some of the most advanced refining and conversion processes in Europe, our Lindsey Oil Refinery processes over 20 different types of crude oil with a capacity in excess of 10 million tonnes per year – over 110,000 barrels per day. As a world class supplier of quality fuels the Refinery has a comprehensive logistics infrastructure including rail and road loading facilities and high capacity pipeline connection to the greater London area. Storage facilities are located at strategic sites throughout the UK. Most of the Refinery’s output is petrol and diesel for road vehicles. We are also market leaders in specialty chemicals through our affiliates Stop-choc, Pamargan and Atotech.

A Partnership Approach

We strive to deliver solutions that actively bring a responsible energy future.  As the largest UK gas supplier to businesses (by volume) and one of the leading electricity suppliers*, we provide a range of energy options to businesses of all sizes. We help our customers control and reduce their environmental impact through advanced meters and products such as Eco-Energy which provides 100% renewable electricity. Our commitment to excellent customer service is reflected by our membership of The Institute of Customer Service.  Through our Marketing & Services business, we produce and market petroleum products and related services including automotive lubricants, bitumen, aviation fuel and special fluids.  At the same time we are introducing more energy efficient products into the lubricants market to improve engine performance, reduce energy usage and emissions.

In 2015 over 35,000 young people took part in the national energy and environmental awards programme, the Total Green School Awards.
