Total Acquires an Interest in Block 1 in the JDZ

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/15/2010, Location: Africa

Total announces the signature of an agreement to acquire Chevronís 45.9% interest in Block 1 in the Joint Development Zone (JDZ). Total will operate the block in partnership with Addax Petroleum JDZ 1 Limited, Dangote Energy Equity Resources and Sasol Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited. The JDZ is governed by a treaty signed by Nigeria and Sao Tomť and Principe in 2001 for a period of 45 years. This transaction is subject to approval by relevant authorities.

The license extends over an area of close to 700 square kilometres in water depths ranging from 1,600 to 1,800 meters. Within this licence, a discovery was made in 2006 (Obo-1 well). The proximity of the Total-operated licenses and facilities in Nigeria will enable cost reductions in developing the licenseís resources. This acquisition is in line with Totalís strategy of expanding its exploration and production operations in the Gulf of Guinea.

Total Exploration & Production in Africa
In 2009, Totalís equity production in Africa averaged close to 750,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (including that of unconsolidated subsidiaries), accounting for 33% of the Groupís total production.

Africa is one of Totalís main production growth focuses. Most of its exploration and production operations are located in Gulf of Guinea countries ó especially Nigeria and Angola ó and in North Africa.

Deepwater developments are one of Totalís main growth areas in Africa. Development of the Groupís second deep offshore project in Nigeria, in the Usan field on the OML 138 permit, began in early 2008, with production scheduled to start up in 2012. Also in Nigeria, front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the Egina field in OML 130, near Akpo, is underway.
