Total's response

Total has just started operating in Uganda, and has not acquired any land in the area referenced in the article. We have recently been temporarily using facilities and lands (construction of five well pads, two camps and access roads) in Nebbi District, West Nile region, Uganda, from September, 2012 to January, 2013, to support our drilling operations. These facilities and lands will be restored and given back to the land owners...in addition to applicable local laws, Total operations are in line with our Societal and Business and Human rights standards mentioned in our Human Rights Guide and our Societal Directive
