Our position in Norway

We are committed to the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Our history in Norway started in 1965. The merger of Total, Fina and Elf in 1999 made Total E&P Norge one of the biggest and strongest players in Norway. Today, Total E&P Norge participates in 89 licenses throughout the entire Norwegian Continental Shelf. In 21 of these, fields are producing. We are operator of 34 licenses.

With the development of the Martin Linge field in the North Sea, Total E&P Norge is returning a major operator again in Norway. Martin Linge is developed with a new living quarters and production platform and a permanently anchored oil storage ship. Gas will be exported to St Fergus in Scotland.
