Marketing oil and gas all over the world at the right price means managing two important variables:
- Financial markets and price risks linked to market volatility, which depend on a number of economic, geopolitical and even climate-related factors.
- Arranging shipping from production areas to consumer hubs worldwide under optimal safety conditions and in a timely, cost-effective way.
To rise to these challenges, our trading & shipping teams around the world work in close collaboration with Total’s Upstream and Downstream business segments, forming a one-stop shop on oil and gas markets. This optimizes transactions and means that we are equipped to offer tailored solutions to a wide range of players, from producers, transporters and refiners to financial institutions and industrial firms.
We trade with an extensive global network of partners every day, affording us a highly diversified range of resources and supply sources to complement our production volumes. This maximizes the chances of selling both our own and our partner producers’ production while securing supply flows to our refineries and our distribution system.
