TOTAL Participates to the 5th Abu Dhabi CEO Roundtable

Total joined along with world’s leading oil, gas, and petrochemical CEOs a virtual round table meeting hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) on June 16. This meeting marked the fifth edition of the Abu Dhabi CEO Roundtable. They have united around the common purpose of ensuring sustainable global energy supplies as economies begin to reopen and the world adjusts to the next normal.

The CEOs shared lessons learned and best practices in ensuring the safety of employees, safeguarding business continuity, and building resilience as they continue responding to COVID-19. They also exchanged views on oil market dynamics and shared their outlook for the short- and medium-term. In addition, the chief executives explained how they are pivoting their strategies to deliver more energy with fewer emissions.

Total’s Chairman and CEO, Patrick Pouyanné participated in the meeting from Total’s headquarters in Paris.

"I would say in Europe today we are more optimistic because we are getting out of the lockdown and honestly in our industry, the consumption of energy is going up quite quickly, quicker to normal than expected by all,” Mr. Pouyanné told delegates.

Power supply, which fell 20 per cent during the lockdown in France was up to “normal market levels” he said.
