Total and Inpex have teamed up for the first time in Indonesia in 1970 to develop the Mahakam Block in East Kalimantan. This initial partnership is often referred to as the Japanese oil industry’s most successful story and a model of French-Japanese industrial cooperation. 

Since then, we have extended our partnership there and work together on multiple projects such as :

  • Abu Dhabi (ADCO, ABK …),
  • Australia (Ichthys LNG),
