With over 900 employees, Total is present in India since 1993. Through its fully owned subsidiary, Total operates in the chemical business (Hutchinson) and is active in LPG for domestic and commercial applications, lubricants for automotive & industrial applications, modified bitumen products and special fluids (Total Oil India Private Limited). The Group has also a growing presence in energy storage (SAFT) and solar energy (Total Solar India Private Limited). 

Total’s Technical Center in Mumbai provides value added technical support in the areas of product development, product training and field-testing in Asian market. The Group has also established a Digital Innovation Center located in Pune, in partnership with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to develop revolutionary solutions and technologies for its refining activities.

More recently, as part of its strategy to further develop offers for the Indian market, Total has partnered from 2018 with the Adani Group through various joint ventures in Fuels, Gas and Renewables. 

Total's commitment to India's energy transition

India’s energy needs will continue to rise in the years ahead, not only because of population growth, but also because of the economy, which is expanding at an annual rate of 7%. Rapid urbanization has exacerbated pollution and air quality issues, particularly in large metropolises. Like everywhere else, the population is increasingly seeking clean energy while still wanting affordable, readily available energy for everyday needs. Total is committed to provide energy that is safer, cleaner, more efficient, and accessible to as many people as possible. In partnership with Adani, Total will participate in the development of regasification terminals,  marketing of LNG to major industrial companies, and hence extend its presence in the natural gas value chain.

Extended Partnership

  • ATPL: 50/50 Joint venture for the development of LNG import infrastructure (Dhamra in the East Coast of the country), and for marketing of LNG and RLNG.
  • AGL: A publicly traded company for City Gas Distribution (38 licenses) in which TOTAL has taken a 37.4% participation. TOTAL and Adani will developa network of fuel stations (2500 in 15 years) through Total Adani Fuel Marketing, a 100% affiliate of AGL.
  • AGEL23: A 50:50 joint venture between Total and Adani Green energy for the operation of 2.3 GW of solar projects.

With these investments (that can be still expanded), TOTAL aims to become a leading player in the Indian energy market in the years to come.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is an organization specializing in IT services, consultancy and business solutions that has been a part of many large businesses across the world in their transformations over the last 50 years.

The Digital Innovation Center

The partnership will initially focus on refining. Thanks to the intensive use of digital technology, the various building blocks of refining (production units, processes, the supply chain and petroleum product markets) will be driven in a wide-ranging way to improve refinery performance. Real-time data analytics, the Internet of Things, automation, artificial intelligence and agile methodology will be used to improve industrial efficiency, energy performance and availability rates.

Industrial Digital Technology at Total

The digital innovation center in India will build on the industrial digital technology initiatives already deployed at Total’s production sites.

The aim of industrial digital technology is to make operations safer and more efficient, by making better decisions faster, simplifying operators’ day-to-day work to enhance their efficiency, and reducing our costs. Industrial digital technology is a highly effective tool for improving industrial competitiveness.

It can be divided into four main areas:

  • Connected, augmented operators :With the help of digital technology, such as mobile apps, drones and robots, we can optimize the way operators work and improve their safety. Applications have been developed to digitize certain tasks, including field check reports, maintenance requests and the consolidation of shift team reports, and drones and robots are now used to carry out inspections in places that are difficult to access, such as at height or inside equipment.
  • Digital representation of our plants : Virtual factories created using 3D imaging enable us to access documentation or maintenance history at any time and to prepare maintenance operations. This data improves efficiency from the plant design stage to decommissioning.
  • Data analytics : Thanks to the analysis of data collected, notably by the numerous sensors installed throughout our production sites (on pumps, turbines and compressors, for example), we can anticipate operating incidents before they occur. That means lower maintenance costs, greater equipment availability and a safer environment for everyone.
  • Collaboration environments : These smart rooms make it possible for production sites to remotely access the knowledge and skills of experts in various disciplines, such as maintenance, operations and the supply chain, thereby enhancing teams’ responsiveness in case of an unplanned event. In some cases, they also enable equipment to be controlled remotely and in real time.
