The operator of choice for the UK Continental Shelf

As one of the largest operators in the UK Continental Shelf, TotalEnergies remains committed to producing the energy the UK needs.

From our first exploration of the North Sea and building our first iconic offshore platforms in the 1970s, to today’s investment and construction of more advanced installations, we have been consistently committed to the UK, working with our partners to create value. Over the last five years we have invested on average £564m per year in our exploration and production activity.

Our production is over 70% gas, a key fuel in the energy transition. We operate around 30% of the UK Continental Shelf's gas production.

We have a strong portfolio of assets located offshore in the North Sea in three major zones:

  • The Alwyn/Dunbar area in the Northern North Sea
  • The Elgin/Franklin and Culzean areas in the Central North Sea
  • The Laggan-Tormore hub in the West of Shetland area

Safety is our core value and it lies at the heart of how we work; from the first conceptual designs of our assets to how we operate every day, safety is an absolute priority for everyone who works for us.

More energy, less emissions  

We need to produce cleaner energy to meet the challenge of preventing climate change. TotalEnergies is playing its part in reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2045 in Scotland and 2050 in the UK by working with both governments, along with other regulators and stakeholders.  

We are reducing emissions from our North Sea platforms to produce hydrocarbons as cleanly as possible, whilst still contributing to the country's security of energy supply.
