“AREVA’s management and I learned with great sadness of the sudden passing of Christophe de Margerie, Chief Executive Officer of TOTAL.
For all professionals in the energy sector, Christophe de Margerie was a leading figure, listened to and admired all around the world. France has lost today one of the great captains of industry and an engaged citizen, committed to expanding his influence.
On behalf of AREVA, we wish his family and loved ones our most sincere condolences. Our thoughts are also with all of the employees of TOTAL.”
