Total M&S Uganda: 60 years and growing

Total M&S was incorporated in 1955 and marks sixty three years of operations in Uganda. Over these years, we have grown to become the leading service provider in the country. We have the 2nd largest distribution network of 129 active service stations countrywide offering a full range of petroleum products and services. In January 2015, Total Uganda kicked off celebrations to mark 60 years of doing business in Uganda. This coincided with the unveiling of the new image of its service stations with a more contemporary and environmentally friendly look. In 2016, Total Uganda introduced TOTAL EXCELLIUM, a new line of specific fuels that clean engines,  provide lasting protection to ensure they perform better, use less fuel and produce fewer polluting emissions. This is in line with the group’s vision of “Committed to better energy” which means safer, cleaner, more efficient, more innovative and more accessible energy.

Total E&P Uganda: Pioneering new technology in East Africa

In February 2012, Total E&P Uganda began operations in the Lake Albert region districts of Buliisa and Nwoya (now the Tilenga project). Total is leading the development activities towards production in the Tilenga project area where majority of the activities are based in the Murchison Falls National Park. Working in this sensitive area requires the use of innovative and environmentally friendly exploration and drilling methods such as the use of 3D cable-less seismic acquisition used for the first time on shore in Africa and horizontal drilling used for the first in East Africa. Total E&P Uganda has recruited a dedicated team of social, environment and biodiversity experts who ensure, on a daily basis that our activities are carried out with respect to the environment, tourism and biodiversity. The company and its partners are also currently undertaking the development of the longest electrically heated pipeline in the world, the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP).
