Total E&P Angola story

Total is the result of two successive mergers: Total and the Belgian company PetroFina created TotalFina (1999), TotalFina and Elf Aquitaine created TotalFinaElf (2000). The name Total was created in March 2003 and represents the heritage of a prestigious energy history. The Total odyssey started in the 1920s.

In Angola, Total initiated its activities in 1952-1953, when it was granted its first concession, in Angolan onshore and offshore – Kwanza Basin and Low Congo Basin. Today, Total E&P Angola is active in the most productive areas of the country, with more than 1,700 workers. The combination of perseverance, dedication and commitment, both in terms of technology and human resources, have led it to the acquisition of offshore (1980) and soon after deep offshore (1992) projects. Nowadays, Total E&P Angola – the #1 oil company in the country – has pre-salt projects (Kwanza Basin), proving its capacity to attain its own objectives.
