Repsol is a Spanish company from Spain formed in October 1987 by the National Institute of Hydrocarbons as a result of the reorganization of the Spanish oil sector and adaptation to changes at a global level. Their activities include exploration, production, transport and refining of oil and gas. They got their name from the lubricant brand Repesa as it was well known and easy to pronounce in different languages. Between January and June of 1999, Repsol acquired 97.81% of Argentina’s YPF S.A., which resulted in a more balanced and better positioned multinational company. In 2015, they acquired 100% of the Canadian oil company Talisman Energy for 8.3 billion US dollars (6.64 billion euros), plus debt. The transaction turned Repsol into one of the world’s largest energy companies, with operations in more than 50 countries and more than 27,000 employees. It also reinforced Repsol as an integrated company with a more balanced and competitive business model, thanks to an improved asset portfolio with the incorporation of many quality assets in geopolitically stable countries. It was then the time for the company to set forth a new strategy focused on the sustainable creation of value. The Repsol Campus, their corporate headquarters, was opened on January 31st, 2013 which employs thousands and encourages a collaborative work environment. The company currently operates working interests in our neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago oil and gas industry and Brazil.
