We are committed to the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Our history in Norway started in 1965.

Research and development
The R&D centre in Total E&P Norge is one of five international R&D centres outside France within the Exploration & Production (E&P) branch of the Total Group. The R&D centres form an essential part of an integrated research strategy strongly linked to Total's overall technology development road map.
Total E&P Norge's R&D objectives focus on specific challenges associated with the Norwegian Continental Shelf, covering three technical domains: subsurface including drilling and well technology, production and the environment. The Total Group provides access to the substantial research undertaken in France and elsewhere in the world.
In line with TOTAL’s ambition to deliver responsible energy that is reliable, affordable and clean, Total E&P Norge is increasingly involved in the development of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies through its participation in the NCCS Research Centre, the Technology Centre Mongstad and the Northern Lights project, aiming at developing a full scale CCUS value chain.
