Commenting on the results, CEO Patrick Pouyanné said: Against a backdrop of lower prices, Total s first quarter results include a number of significant accomplishments in all segments. In the, with CLOV producing above plateau, the start ups of West Franklin Phase 2, Eldfisk II and Ofon Phase 2, as well as the entry into the new ADCO concession, Total achieved strong production growth of 10% (4% excluding ADCO), compared to the same period last year. The Group is thus benefiting from its organic growth strategy. In we launched restructuring plans for the Lindsey, La Mède and Donges refineries, thereby enabling us to meet the objective of a 20% reduction in European capacity by Asset sales continued with the completion of the sale of Bostik and several onshore fields in Nigeria. While the Brent price decreased by 50% compared to last year, our adjusted net results this quarter were 2.6 billion dollars, a decrease of 22% over the same period. Total is thus demonstrating its resilience and profiting from its integrated model. In the, production growth along with the first positive results of the cost reduction program partially offset lower oil prices. Downstream again generated excellent results due to its ongoing restructuring efforts and improved market conditions in refining and marketing. All of our teams are mobilized to reduce costs, lower breakevens and deliver new projects. With our strong balance sheet, we are confident in our ability to adapt and respond to this period of lower prices and achieve our growth targets for the benefit of our shareholders. 1 Definition of adjusted results on page 2. 2 Group share. 3 The ex-dividend date will be September 28, 2015 and the payment date will be set for October 21, Key figures 4 in millions of dollars, except effective tax rate, earnings per share and number of shares 1Q15 4Q14 Sales 42,313 52,511 60,687-30% Adjusted operating income from business segments 3,809 3,705 6,182-38% Adjusted net operating income from business segments 2,780 2,797 3,699-25% 1,359 1,596 3,092-56% 1, x % Contribution of equity affiliates to adjusted net income % Group effective tax rate % 40.1% 57.7% Adjusted net income 2,602 2,801 3,327-22% Adjusted fully-diluted earnings per share (dollars) % Adjusted fully-diluted earnings per share (euros) % Fully-diluted weighted-average shares (million) 2,285 2,287 2,277 - Net income (Group share) 2,663 (5,658) 3,335-20% Investments 6 8,809 8,152 5, % Divestments 2,984 1,689 1, % Net investments 7 5,825 6,409 4, % Cash flow from operations 4,387 7,354 5,338-18% Adjusted cash flow from operations 4,635 5,721 6,204-25% Highlights since the beginning of the first quarter Entered new ADCO concession in Abu Dhabi with 10% interest for 40-year duration, effective January 1, 2015 Finalized the sales of Bostik and several onshore blocks in Nigeria Started production from Eldfisk II in the Norwegian North Sea Started production from West Franklin Phase 2 in the UK North Sea Stopped flaring and started producing gas from the Ofon field in Nigeria Announced plans to reduce capacities of the refineries at Lindsey (United Kingdom) and La Mède (France) and to modernize the Donges (France) refinery 4 Adjusted results are defined as income using replacement cost, adjusted for special items, excluding the impact of changes for fair value.

Adjusted net operating income from the segment was 1,359 M$ in the first quarter 2015, a decrease of 56% compared to the first quarter 2014, essentially due to the lower oil price, partially offset by production growth and the initial positive results of the cost reduction program. The effective tax rate was 60.5%, impacted in particular by the consolidation of ADCO. 3 Refinery throughput and utilization rates* 1Q15 4Q14 Total refinery throughput (kb/d) 1,931 1,887 1, % France % Rest of Europe % Rest of world % Utilization rates** Based on crude only 87% 82% 77% Based on crude and other feedstocks 88% 86% 83% * Includes share of TotalErg. Results for refineries in South Africa, the French Antilles and Italy are reported in the segment. ** Based on distillation capacity at the beginning of the year. In the first quarter 2015, refinery throughput increased by 14% compared to the first quarter 2014, benefiting from lower levels of maintenance in France in the first quarter 2015 as well as the start up of Satorp, at full capacity since August Results in millions of dollars, except the ERMI European refining margin indicator - ERMI ($/t) 1Q15 4Q x7 Adjusted operating income* 1,335 1, x4 Adjusted net operating income* 1, x3 Contribution of Specialty ** % Investments % Divestments 1, na Cash flow from operations 314 3,113 1,593-80% Adjusted cash flow from operations 1,380 1, x2 * Detail of adjustment items shown in the business segment information annex to financial statements. ** Hutchinson and Atotech, Bostik until February The European refining margin indicator averaged a very high level of 47.1 $/t this quarter, due to strong product demand, particularly gasoline, and due to a higher level of maintenance, notably in refineries located in the United States. Petrochemical margins remained favorable. Adjusted net operating income from the segment was 1,100 M$ in the first quarter 2015, three times higher than in the first quarter The segment continued to benefit from its restructuring and was able to take advantage of the higher margins. 4 Petroleum product sales Sales (kb/d)* 1Q15 4Q14 Europe 1,103 1,132 1,058 +4% Rest of world % Total sales 1,814 1,810 1, % * Excludes trading and bulk refining sales, includes share of TotalErg. In the first quarter 2015, sales increased by 10% compared to the first quarter of last year, due to more typical winter conditions than in the same period last year and the repositioning of the Group s networks in Europe as well as development in growth markets, notably in Egypt where Total is leveraging its acquisitions.

Adjusted net operating income from the segment increased by 23% compared to the first quarter 2014, mainly due to an increase in sales and a recovery in margins for heating products, which were lower in the first quarter 2014 because of an unusually mild winter, as well as a positive accounting effect on the valuation of hedging positions. 5 First quarter 2015 results Net operating income from business segments Adjusted net operating income from the business segments was 2,780 M$ in the first quarter 2015, a decrease of 25% compared to the first quarter 2014, reflecting mainly the lower oil price, partially offset by production growth, the initial positive results of the cost reduction program and the strong Downstream performance. The effective tax rate 9 for the business segments was 45.3% in the first quarter 2015 compared to 55.7% in the first quarter 2014, reflecting mainly the strong Downstream results which are taxed at a lower rate. Net income (Group share) Adjusted net income was 2,602 M$ in the first quarter 2015 compared to 3,327 M$ in the first quarter 2014, a decrease of 22%. Adjusted net income excludes the after-tax inventory effect, the impact of changes in fair value and special items 10. Special items 11 had a negative impact of 95 M$ in the first quarter This includes the impairment of assets in Libya and Yemen due to the deteriorated security situation this quarter, partially offset by the gain on the sale of Bostik and the interests in several onshore fields in Nigeria, as well as the effect of fiscal changes in the United Kingdom. Special items had a positive impact on net income in the first quarter 2014 of 124 M$. On March 31, 2015, there were 2,286 million fully-diluted shares compared to 2,278 million shares on March 31, Divestments acquisitions Asset sales in the first quarter 2015 were 2,739 M$, essentially comprised of the sale of Bostik, the Group s interests in OML 18 and 29 in Nigeria and the transportation rights in the Ocensa pipeline in Colombia. Acquisitions were 2,495 M$ in the first quarter 2015, notably comprised of the entry into the new ADCO concession, the carry on the Utica gas and condensate field in the United States and the renewal of licenses in Nigeria. Cash flow The Group s net cash flow 12 in the first quarter 2015 was negative 1,438 M$ compared to 1,313 M$ in the first quarter The decrease is due notably to the lower oil price, partially offset by a higher level of production, the initial positive results of the cost reduction program and the strong Downstream performance. The Group also issued 5 B (5.6 B$) of perpetual subordinated notes, which are accounted for as equity. 9 Tax on adjusted net operating income / (adjusted net operating income - income from equity affiliates - dividends received from investments + tax on adjusted net operating income). 10 Details shown on page Details shown on page Net cash flow = cash flow from operations - net investments (including other transactions with non-controlling interests). 6 Summary and outlook In the context of the sharp decline in oil prices, Total is pursuing the implementation of its strong response which includes delivery of its new projects, a decrease in investments, a significant cost reduction program that is already bearing fruit and an acceleration of divestments. In the, in addition to the three projects that have already started up in 2015, the Termokarstovoye gas field is scheduled to start up in the second quarter, followed by GLNG, Laggan-Tormore, Surmont 2 and Vega Pleyade in the second half of In the second quarter, production will be impacted by heavy seasonal maintenance activity, mainly in Nigeria, the United Kingdom and Norway. In addition, due to the lag effect in contractual formulas, gas prices in the second quarter will be further affected by the decreasing oil price. In addition to the volatility in energy markets, the beginning of 2015 has been marked by rising geopolitical tensions. Due to the deteriorating security conditions in Libya and Yemen, production was halted in February 2015 in onshore Libya and in April 2015 in Yemen. Due to the geographic diversity of the Group s portfolio, the impact of these events on the Group s results is limited. The Group s first priority wherever it is present is the safety of its people and the security of its installations. Since the beginning of the second quarter, refining and petrochemical margins have remained strong, despite the structural overcapacity in Europe, which will weigh on margins in the medium term.
