TOTAL S.A., together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, operates as an integrated international oil and gas company. With operations in approximately 130 countries, the company is engaged in all sectors of the oil industry, including upstream (hydrocarbon exploration, development and production) and downstream (refining, petrochemicals, specialty chemicals, trading and shipping of crude oil and petroleum products and marketing). It also operates in the power generation and renewable energy sectors. Reserves As of December 31, 2014, the company’s proved developed reserves of oil and gas included 5,707 Mboe. Segments The company’s activities are divided into three business segments as follows: an Upstream segment including, alongside the activities of the Exploration and Production of hydrocarbons, the activities of Gas & Power; a Refining & Chemicals segment constituting a major industrial hub comprising the activities of refining, petrochemicals and specialty chemicals. This segment also includes the activities of oil Trading & Shipping; and a Marketing & Services segment including the activities of supply and marketing in the field of petroleum products, as well as the activity of New Energies. Upstream segment The company has exploration and production activities in approximately 50 countries and produces oil or gas in approximately 30 countries. Gas & Power conducts activities downstream from production related to natural gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), as well as power generation and trading, and other activities. Liquefied natural gas: The company has a diversified position both in the upstream and downstream portions of the LNG chain. Through its stakes in liquefaction plants located in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Nigeria, Norway, Yemen and Angola, as well as a gas supply agreement with the Bontang LNG plant in Indonesia, the company markets LNG in all worldwide markets. Gas & Power is responsible for LNG operations downstream from liquefaction plants. It is in charge of marketing LNG on behalf of Exploration & Production and developing the company’s downstream LNG portfolio for its trading, marketing and transport operations as well as re-gasification terminals. Refining & Chemicals segment The Refining & Chemicals segment includes the company’s refining, petrochemicals and specialty chemicals businesses. The company’s refining capacity was 2,187 kb/d, as of December 31, 2014. The company has equity stakes in 21 refineries located in Europe, the United States, the French West Indies, Africa, the Middle East and China. As of February 2, 2015, the company finalized the divestment of its wholly-owned subsidiary Bostik, specialized in adhesive chemicals, to the Arkema group. The petrochemicals business includes base petrochemicals (olefins and aromatics) and polymer derivatives (polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene and hydrocarbon resins). The petrochemicals businesses are located mainly in Europe, the United States, Qatar, South Korea and Saudi Arabia. Most of these sites are either adjacent or connected by pipelines to the company’s refineries. As a result, its petrochemical operations are integrated within its refining operations. The specialty chemicals business includes elastomer processing and electroplating chemistry. The specialty chemicals businesses include elastomer processing (Hutchinson) and electroplating chemistry (Atotech). They primarily serve the automotive, construction, electronics, aerospace and convenience goods markets. The company markets specialty products in approximately 60 countries and intends to develop by combining organic growth and targeted acquisitions. Elastomer processing: Hutchinson designs and provides solutions to support automotive and aircraft manufacturers, and other major industries worldwide. The company mainly develops anti-vibration and fluid management systems, as well as sealing solutions that combine performance and energy efficiency. In 2014, Hutchinson also operated in other markets, particularly civil aeronautics and helicopters. Electroplating: Atotech operates in the electroplating sector. It is active in the markets for electronics (printed circuits, semiconductors) and general surface treatments (automotive, construction, furnishing). Marketing & Services segment This segment has operations in approximately 150 countries. The company is a distributor of petroleum products in western Europe and on the African continent. This segment has a network of approximately 15,500 service stations. New Energies: New Energies develops renewable energies that would, in combination with hydrocarbons, help respond to the challenge of climate change by developing a diversified energy mix while also generating lower CO2 emissions. Solar energy: The company is in the process of developing upstream operations through industrial production and downstream marketing activities in the photovoltaic sector based on crystalline silicon technology. SunPower: As of December 31, 2014, the company held 59.77% of SunPower, an American company based in San Jose, California. SunPower is an integrated player that designs, manufactures and supplies cells, as well as the crystalline silicon-based solar panels in the market. SunPower is also active in the design and construction of large turnkey power plants and the marketing of integrated solar solutions for decentralized electricity generation. Upstream, SunPower manufactures all of its cells in Asia (the Philippines and Malaysia). The cells are assembled into modules, or solar panels, in plants located in Asia, the United States, Mexico, Europe and South Africa. Downstream, SunPower markets its panels worldwide for applications ranging from residential and commercial roof tiles to large solar power plants. Other renewable energies: In the field of wind power, the company owns a 12 MW wind farm in Mardyck near Dunkirk, France, which was commissioned in 2003. In marine energy, the company holds a 24.1% share in Scotrenewables Tidal Power, located in the Orkney Islands in Scotland. History TOTAL S.A. was founded in 1924.
