Total Increase Holdings in North Sea with Recent License Awards

Total has been awarded the three offshore licenses it applied for under the 23rd Oil and Gas Licensing Round of the United Kingdom's Department of Trade and Industry.

Total will be the operator with a 100% interest of the licenses for blocks 3/25-b, 4/21 covering an area of 183 square kilometers to the south of the Alwyn field 440 kilometers north-east of Aberdeen and for blocks 8/14, 8/15 with an area of 420 square kilometers, some 300 kilometers north-east of Aberdeen.

Total also has been awarded a stake of 43.25% in block 9/9c to be operated by BP and covering an area of 43 square kilometers adjacent to the Bruce field, in which Total already holds the same interest.

These awards illustrate Total's commitment to continue exploration of the UK continental shelf and to actively participate in the further development of the North Sea oil and gas potential.
