Digital technologies to prevent major accidents
Develop a smart, real-time, remote safety diagnosis and decision-making tool to protect personnel and the installations.
As a major energy player, we place our environmental and societal commitments at the heart of our strategy. Supporting this ambition means first of all guaranteeing the safety and security of personnel in all our activities, as well as meeting the challenges of climate change and actively contributing to reinforce our local integration.
In the field, our capacity to operate anywhere in the world in a safe, reliable and responsible manner, is the cornerstone of our operational excellence and economic performance.
Safety is one of the biggest challenges that our Exploration & Production teams have to meet. Because it is one of our Group’s fundamental values and the keystone of our entire strategy, our ambition in this area applies at all levels. From safety in the workplace, to process and transportation safety in operations. It is hardwired in our processes and guides our actions on a daily basis. We do all we can to make sure that everyone – our employees, our partners, our contractors and local stakeholders – shares this value.
At the CSTJF, the H3SEQ business lines play a key role. They are present at all stages in the exploration & production chain to prevent risks and reduce the impacts of our activities on our employees, the local populations and the environment.
We consistently promote stringent safety management, essential for sharing our safety culture and making sure it is appropriated by our personnel and external stakeholders. We deploy a structured and rigorous operational approach. Identifying the risks, anticipating, checking, acting and continuously improving our safety performances, particularly by developing advanced technologies, are just some of the commitments and actions that set the pace of our employees and partner companies daily lives in order to meet the Group’s core goal: zero fatal accidents. Safety is really a guarantee of operational efficiency: the sites on which safety is the strictest often obtain the best performances.
On our teams, drillers, data scientists and developers deploy new solutions for the monitoring and advanced analysis of operations, including predictive analysis to prevent major accidents.
The CSTJF considers respect for the environment as an equally important priority. According to the sustainable development scenario of the International Energy Agency (IEA), hydrocarbons should represent almost half of the primary energy mix in 2040: they will continue to play a decisive role when it comes to meeting the world’s energy demands.
As a major energy player, we are well aware of the risks of our activities for the environment. To meet the energy needs of the world population, our exploration & production teams perform their activities while keeping a close eye on the ecological, environmental and social conditions, and do so throughout the lifetime of our projects even after a field has stopped producing and has been rehabilitated. Continuous improvement of our environmental performance calls for ongoing vigilance that is rigorously applied both in projects and on the production sites operated by the Group across the world.
The environment is the focus of several research projects at the CSTJF and the PERL. Every day, our experts put all their efforts into realizing Total’s ambition to become the responsible energy major by developing innovative, efficient and cost-effective technological solutions.
