We are present in Bulgaria since 2007 when AS 24 Bulgaria was created to promote the AS 24 fuel card offer dedicated to international transport companies. 

In 2008, we created Total Bulgaria EOOD to develop the distribution of lubricants in Bulgaria. Since then, Total and Elf brands have gained high visibility and reputation in the country not only for owners of cars, motorcycles, trucks, earthmovers or tractors, but also in various industries from metalworking to textile and from mining to food production.

Since July 2012, Total in partnership with Repsol and OMV holds a permit for prospecting and exploration of oil and gas in Block 1-21 Han Asparuh in the deep offshore part of the Black Sea. Total E&P Bulgaria is operator of the Block since April 2014 and is responsible for drilling the exploration wells. In this project Total brings its worldwide recognized expertise in deep sea technology, project management and reservoir development and its highest HSE standards.

Total E&P Bulgaria opened its office in Sofia in 2014. Since then it is working to develop and keep a trustful relationship with all stakeholders, including the Government, NGOs, the business and academic communities.
