Total in Brazil


The Total group started its presence in Brazil more than 40 years ago, in 1975. We now operate through six affiliates in the country in the Exploration & Production, Marketing & Services, Refining & Chemicals, and Gas, Renewables & Power segments. The Group has approximately 3,000 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, 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.
