France is one of Europe’s biggest importers and consumers of energy. Only a very small proportion of the oil consumed in France is produced in-country – around 1%. Our activity takes place within this context; in 2019 Bridge énergies delivered 0.49% of national production and 0.84% of production from the Paris Basin.
Bridge énergies makes rigorous efforts to adhere to the established environmental requirements. Our conscientiousness has earned Bridge énergies the lease and drilling authorizations necessary for our activity.
How does oil form? It is created over tens of millions of years, the result of once-living plant and animal- based micro-organisms forming deposits on the sea bed and being subjected to high pressures and temperatures.
