André Demargne - Vice-president of Antar Pétroles de la Atlantique
Born August 18, 1909 in Céret (Pyrénées-Orientales). College Stanislas (Paris), National School of Mines of Paris, National School of Petroleum and Engines and Faculty of Law of Paris. Joined Pechelbronn in 1937; director of the national oil company Languedoc-Mediterranean from 1944 to 1954. CEO of the CEP from 1954 to 1971 and president of Copefa (Compagnie des pétoles France-Afrique) from 1966 to 1968 and vice-president of Antar Pétroles de l 'Atlantic. Director at Elf-ERAP from 1966 to 1971. He played a key role in the attachment to the future Elf group of the Antar sphere, while CFP-Total, nearly 25% shareholder of Antar, main supplier and client of Donges, hoped that the merger would be to his advantage: naïve hope no doubt, because the weight of Antar, in particular on the French market, put the two French groups at comparable levels by the attachment to Elf, while its attachment at Total would have put Elf in a much lower position. President of the Union of Union Chambers of the Petroleum Industry (UCSIP). President of the Union Chamber of Petroleum Refining, of the Union Chamber of Petroleum Transport, of the Union Chamber of Distribution of Petroleum Products. Director of SNPA, representative of ERAP. Died on December 9, 1982.
