--Total SA's results, to be released Thursday, will show its 2017 profit to be about 30% higher than it was in 2016, when the company reported an adjusted net profit of 7.8 billion euros, Chief Executive Patrick Pouyanne tells Le Monde.
--Total's acquisition of Maersk Oil, ADCO's concession in Abu Dhabi and its strategic alliance with Petrobras in Brazil will ensure an average increase of production of 5% per year until 2022, Le Monde quotes the CEO as saying.
--Mr. Pouyanne says the company is working with scenarios of $50 dollars per barrel given the many uncertainties in the oil market, and he thinks oil consumption in 2040 will be lower than 2018, according to Le Monde.
