Since Total started its operations in Argentina, in 1978, it has become a major player, not only in oil and gas exploration and production, but also in gas transmission and petroleum product distribution.

In Argentina, Total Austral operates in oil and gas exploration. Total Gas Marketing Cono Sur assures gas marketing, supplying gas to residential and industrial markets, power generators, and the transportation sector. And Total Especialidades Argentina is a key player in both the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market and the lubricant and phytosanitary sector, where it operates under the brands Total and ELF.

Actively engaged with local communities

In Total we are committed to transform our activities in sources of value and opportunities for local communities. To achieve this, we follow three key principles: transparent dialogue, management of social impacts and creation of shared value.

An example of this community commitment is the cooperation agreement made with the Foundation Center for Infectious Disease Studies (FUNCEI), whereby we implemented a program to improve hospital-acquired disease management, surveillance and control, as well as to enhance laboratory, sterilization and cleaning services at Rio Grande Regional Hospital in Tierra del Fuego.

Present across the entire energy value chain

On a day-to-day basis, Total affirms its commitment to provide better energy to the whole of Argentina. Being present across the entire energy value chain, from searching for new resources to selling products and services to consumers, has enabled us to adapt to new market trends and proactively meet our customers’ expectations through a diversified energy mix.
