Total M&S Uganda: 60 years and growing

Total M&S was incorporated in 1955 and marks sixty 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 118 active service stations countrywide offering a full range of petroleum products and services. In January 2015, Total Uganda kicked off celebrations to make 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. 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 sensitive area of the Murchison Falls National Park where majority of our exploration and production activities are based. Working in this 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.
