organisation profile

Total S.A. is engaged in the upstream activities of acquiring, exploring, developing and producing oil and gas. A considerable volume of oil & gas is originating from offshore oil & gas fields, scattered around the globe in seas and on Continental Shelves. Metocean data sets, comprising observed parameters like sea level, waves, currents, sea temperature, conductivity, air temperature, air pressure, and wind, are supporting these activities. Observed metocean data, analyses and climate studies provide the oil & gas industry  with essential information and knowledge for the design and engineering of offshore installations, such as production platforms and pipelines, and for assessing workability conditions. In addition the information is used for supporting the planning of, for example diving operations and the installation of pipelines, and the forecasting of storms and heavy weather conditions, which might require timely evacuation or  other safety  measures to be taken during the operation of offshore installations. To complement metocean data & information, that can be retrieved from other sources, Total is active in monitoring and collecting metocean data itself. This is done all over the world. The Paris office hosts the section, which oversees these worldwide metocean data activities.
