The Total group started its presence in Brazil in 1975. We now operate through five affiliates in the country in the Exploration & Production, Gas, Marketing & Services and Refining & Chemicals segments. In the New Energies segment, Total holds a 18% interest in Amyris, a U.S.-based biotechnology company. The Group has more than 2,500 professionals committed to better energy in Brazil.

A long term Commitment with Brazil

Brazil is considered a pivotal country for Total global growth strategy. The potential of the oil and gas reserves, such as the Libra field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt, and the local market perspectives are very attractive to our long-term investments in the country.  

Diversified activities

Total E&P do Brasil operates in the Exploration & Production sector, and has a broad and diversified portfolio, composed of 17 offshore blocks, mainly focused on deep offshore. The company’s main assets in the country are the Libra field – Total is part of the consortium with 20% interest – and the five operated blocks in Foz do Amazonas Basin. Total Lubrificantes rises in the local market with a complete range of products for the automotive, industrial and agricultural segments. Total Gás & Eletricidade takes part in important projects in the national gas sector, such as Gasoduto Brasil-Bolívia.

In the Refining & Chemicals segment, Hutchinson is a global specialist in sealing systems for several industries, such as automotive and aerospace. In the New Energies sector, we operate in Brazil through the U.S.-based biotechnology company Amyris which develops aviation biofuel from sugarcane.
