The article discusses the commitment of the oil and gas company, Total SA to reduce its activities for greenhouse gas emissions to improve energy efficiency in the company. It states that the company has participated in many operational and research and development (R&D) programs related to carbon dioxide capture and geological storage (CCS). It also notes that the company has been involved in carbon dioxide injection and geological storage in a depleted gas field.
