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, the abundance of natural resources, in addition to the known expertise of local human resources are very attractive to our long-term investments in the country.
