Our sector in France

France is one of the leading energy importing and consuming countries in Europe. French oil production represents a very small share of national consumption, around 1%. It is in this context that Bridge Energies produced 0.47% of the national production and 0.78% of the production of the Paris Basin in 2021.


Bridge Energies is committed to strict compliance with the environmental requirements. Its seriousness has earned it the lease and drilling authorisations necessary for its activity.

Energy in France

In 2019, the oil produced in France represented just 1% of the country’s consumption, which means huge quantities are imported from other countries.

The formation of hydrocarbons

How is oil formed? This matter is created after tens of millions of years, resulting from the deposition of plant micro-organisms on the seabed, under high pressure and temperature.
