The Group reported adjusted net income of S3.3 billion for the first quarter, solid results albeit slightly lower than last year. The impact of sharply lower European refining margins was limited thanks to the implementation of performance improvement plans by the segment,” Total’s Chairman and CEO Christophe de Margerie said.

Operational excellence and capital discipline are the cornerstones of our robust results. With the CLOV project expected to start up on schedule, the Group launched the Kaombo project in the first quarter in ultra-deep offshore Angola. Kaombo illustrates perfectly our commitments and ambitions by combining innovative engineering solutions and disciplined cost management to create a competitive project. Regarding exploration, several promising wells are in progress or about to start, notably in Brazil, the Kwanza basin in Angola, and deep-offshore Ivory Coast, following our recent discovery in the frontier San Pedro basin.”

In all the segments, our teams are working to translate our announced cost reduction commitment into tangible targets and are ready to participate in making the company more efficient, while keeping safety and the environment as our highest priorities,” he concluded.
