Total Gabon: Profit falls on high exploration costs

Total Gabon, a subsidiary of the French oil company Total, reported a drop in net profit for the full year 2013.

Net income amounted to $302 million in 2013, down 8% from $330 million a year earlier. The company explained that the contraction stemmed from increases in exploration spending, depreciation and amortization, and operating costs.

Total Gabon production, however, is on the rise. The company’s output in 2013 averaged 46,900 barrels per day in 2013, up 3% from the previous year’s figure of 45,400 barrels per day. This was mainly attributable to additional production from Phase 3 of the Anguille field redevelopment and well workovers on the Anguille, Torpille and Girelle fields.
