Geosciences & Drilling


At Total, our colleagues working in Geosciences and Drilling are like modern-day explorers. Equipped with highly ambitious human, technical, and financial resources, our teams carry out the prospecting and mining of hydrocarbon deposits in often challenging contexts. They also put our Group's commitments to energy efficiency and reducing our impact on climate and the environment into practice.


Our prospecting and production areas are located all over the world, in onshore, offshore, and deep-offshore configurations where Total has established itself as a reference for high-tech and innovative facilities. Multiple opportunities for geographic and functional mobility provide a top-notch environment for young graduates to refine their training and an exceptional sector for the most experienced professionals to deploy their skills.


All of these functions play a decisive role in the profitability and growth of our Group. And they are performed with a heightened sense of responsibility, since at Total, subsoil exploration and mining is carried out in compliance with rigorous ethical and HSEQ guidelines.
