Total: Third Quarter 2018 Results


Third quarter 2018 results

Paris, October 26, 2018 – Total's Board of Directors met on October 25, 2018, to close the Group's third quarter 2018 accounts. Commenting on the results, Chairman and CEO Patrick Pouyanné said:

“Total's third quarter adjusted net income increased by 48% from last year to $4.0 billion, while oil prices increased by 44% to 75 $/b supported by supply tensions and the geopolitical context. Debt-adjusted cash flow (DACF) increased by 37% to $7.5 billion and return on equity rose to 11.9% over the past twelve months.

These results confirm the Group's ability to take full advantage of the favorable environment and to deliver on its objectives for production growth and cost discipline thanks to very good operational efficiency.

Exploration & Production doubled its adjusted net operating profit to $2.9 billion in the third quarter. Production rose to 2.8 Mboe/d, an increase of 8.6% compared to a year ago. Notably during the quarter, major project start-ups included Kaombo in Angola, Ichthys LNG in Australia and the second train of Yamal LNG in Russia. Production growth for 2018 will be close to 8%.

Also, exploration had significant success with the wells of Glendronach in the United Kingdom, Shwee Yee Htun 2 in Myanmar and Sururu in Brazil.

In addition, Total finalized the acquisition of Engie's LNG business to become the second-largest publicly-traded LNG player in the world, as well as Direct Energie, accelerating the growth of its low carbon electricity business.

Finally, despite a highly volatile environment for European refining margins, the excellent availability of its units allowed the Downstream to generate $1.8 billion of cash flow in the third quarter. The Group continued to implement its petrochemicals growth strategy by launching a major project in cooperation with Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia. Total continues to expand in fast-growing markets by partnering with the Adani group to develop its LNG business and a retail network in India.

In line with the announced shareholder return policy, the Group has increased the 2018 interim dividends by 3.2%. In addition, the Group has bought back $1 billion of its shares at the end of September and confirms its intent to complete $1.5 billion of buybacks for the full-year 2018.”
