STAVANGER, Norway (Reuters) - French energy group Total <TOTF.PA> is not looking at investing in the U.S. shale oil industry when asked whether peer BP's <BP.L> $10.5 billion acquisition of U.S. shale assets from BHP Billiton <BLT.L>, <BHP.AX> had made that sector more attractive.

"It's first quite expensive, second we don't have the human resources. BP had the human resources, BP had already a position, so I can understand their move but it's not my case,” Patrick Pouyanne said on the sidelines of an oil conference.
