Project website

This coms material aims to discover, thanks to a dynamic mapping tool, Total’s ambitions to drill off the coast of Brazil and the risks associated with this project. It allows our audiences to understand and locate the issues and the various impacts this industrial project could have on local population and natural habitats.

The geographic entities shown on the map are the elements linked to the industrial risk gathered in two main groups:
– Objects related to hazard : oil platform location and oil drilling licences
– Objects related to vulnerability : Human (coastal communities, fishing areas…) and Fauna/Flora (coral reef, mangrove, habitat of the regional iconic species)
