Although Total's overall strategy remains upstream driven its downstream operations generated very strong results in 2015. Following a period of intensive capital expenditure Total will cut down investments over the next few years and focus on cash flow generation. Upstream production volumes grew by over 9% in 2015 to support a targeted annual average growth rate of 5% over the 2014 to 2019 period. A US$10 billion divestment programme is in place covering all sectors which will see Total continue to shed non core assets and focus on reducing costs and improving market share where it has competitive advantage. To this end in 2015 the company sold its fuels marketing business in Turkey and its minority stake in the Schwedt refinery.
