SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, ) – A major French-based oil and gas group with branches in more than 130 countries has begun operations in Fiji.

TOTAL Fiji Limited says it is now investing its time, energy and resources into improving and upgrading the standards of service stations and petroleum distribution infrastructure in Fiji. The company opened shop in Fiji on November 1, 2006 after the purchase of shares and business interests of Shell Fiji Limited in Fiji and Samoa along with the business assets of Shell in Tonga.

The wholly owned subsidiary of the France based company TOTAL represents a network of eight terminals and depots, and 20 service stations in Fiji.

As Europe's market leader in refining and marketing, TOTAL has a worldwide refining capacity of 2.7 million barrels of oil a day with interests in 27 refineries.

It operates a network of around 16,000 service stations worldwide, mostly in Europe and Africa and employs 95,000 people.

TOTAL is working to keep the world supplied with energy, both today and tomorrow. With a presence in New Caledonia and French Polynesia, Total's downstream portfolio in the Pacific Islands already includes a network of 10 terminals and depots and 62 service stations, as well as lubricants, aviation fuels, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) activities," it said in a statement.
