About TOTAL

Who we are

Total Lubmarine is a specialized marine lubricants business which provides innovative solutions to the global shipping industry.

Headquartered in Nanterre, France as part of Total Lubrifiants SA, we have a presence in over 100 countries and 1000 ports around the world. We provide local support to our global maritime industry customers with a pioneering range of marine lubricants and greases.


Our history

Our history began in 1952, when Antar, a small petroleum business in France, began supplying marine lubricants to some 40 steam vessels. Elf Aquitaine expanded this activity internationally in 1961 when it created Lubmarine, a worldwide network of partners and distributors dedicated to marketing and supplying the same high quality marine lubricants, backed by industry-leading customer services around the world.

Over 60 years later, Total Lubmarine - a division within the Total Group, the world’s fifth largest publicly traded integrated oil and gas company – is now one of the leading marine lubricants suppliers and our products and services are trusted to protect the marine engines and auxiliary equipment on board over 7,000 vessels each year.


Our network partners

Lubmarine is a worldwide network of partners and distributors centered around Total Lubrifiants SA - lubricants subsidiary of oil and gas major Total SA – supplying marine lubricants and services to the worldwide shipping industry.

While partners vary in size, activity and status, ranging from large integrated energy companies to specialized distributors, they all play the same role in the life of the Lubmarine organization. By leveraging the logistics and manufacturing capabilities of the other members of the network, customers can find our marine lubricants in over 1,000 ports worldwide.
