French energy giant and LNG player Total reported a rise of 28 percent to $10.6 billion in its adjusted net income during the last year, boosted by higher oil and gas prices and an increase in production.

For the fourth quarter, Total’s adjusted net income stood at $2.9 billion rising 19 percent on year-on-year, the company said on Thursday.

Total’s liquefied natural gas sales during the year in review rose 2 percent to 11.23 million tons.

Quarterly LNG sales dropped 3 percent to 2.67 million tons, it said.

Total also announced plans to reward shareholders with dividend increases and a share buyback as well as some $2 billion of acquisitions in 2018.

The company rewarded shareholders with a 10 percent rise in dividends over the next three-year period.

This year’s interim dividend will increase 3.2 percent, and the company plans to buy back up to $5 billion shares over the 2018-2020 period.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
