We create energy
In the Americas we are mainly active in hydrocarbon exploration and production and in the Refining & Marketing and chemicals sector. We have put in place the Upstream Area 1 project in Mexico: we have developed several community support initiatives in the nearby area. In addition, the new oil discovery on the Saasken Exploration Prospect in Block 10 is opening a potential commercial outcome of Block 10 since several other prospects located nearby may be clustered in a synergic development.
