Total Adjusted Net Income Drops (France)

French energy giant Total said it adjusted net income was 2,699 M€ in the second quarter 2013 compared to 2,7 91 M€ in the second quarter 2012, a decrease of 3%.

Cash flow from operations was 3,706 M€ in the second quarter 2013, compared to 6,167 M€ in the second quarter 2012.

Commenting on the results, Chairman and CEO Christophe de Margerie said: “With adjusted net income of 2.7 billion euros this quarter, the Group demonstrated its strong resilience in the Upstream desp ite lower hydrocarbon prices.

“The restart of production at Elgin/Franklin in the UK and the first cargo from Angola LNG were not able events of the quarter.

“Regarding our Upstream projects, the launch of the Egina deep – offshore project and the progress on Yamal LNG illustrate our ability to prepare for the future in a sustainable manner by developing competitive and diverse projects.

“In this way, the Group expects to benefit from an extended series of start – ups over the next several years.

“Th e Downstream reaped the initial benefits of the restructuring program even though further changes are still necessary to strengthen our position.

“The modernization of the Antwerp platform announced this quarter is yet another step in this program and demonstrates again that our economic performance is inextricably linked with our social and environmental commitments.”

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
