With 17,000 gas stations, mostly in Europe and Africa, Total sells more gasoline to consumers on those continents than any other company. But its oil and gas production capacity
has been in decline, falling 5% in 2006. To combat that trend, incoming CEO Christophe de Margerie announced 11 new production projects in 2006, from Nigeria to Saudi Arabia.
Total saw its sales shrink slightly in 2005, but managed to grow last year's top line by 10.5%, to $168.4 billion.
