Paris, October 21, 2014

The tragic death of Christophe de Margerie is a profound shock to France and French industry.

The chief executive of Total cared passionately about his company which he expanded internationally and put at the forefront of innovation.
Outspoken and deeply attached to France, Christophe de Margerie was a man of vision.

I extend my heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and all Total employees; he was an exceptional business leader who successfully promoted France./.
