He said the group still has $6 billion of capital employed in Russia after writing down around $11 billion in the first nine months of the year.

The $3.1 billion Russia-related impairments booked in the third quarter were linked to write-downs on the company’s Novatek stake, he said.

It also reflected greater uncertainty on TotalEnergies’ ability to receive cash flows from Russia given Western sanctions, he added.
