I spent most of my career with TOTAL in the Exploration Production Branch. I have been involved in most of the major Development Projects worldwide of TOTAL, particularly as Project Director for the Dalia Development in Angola; I was deputy MD in Norway and later MD for TOTAL QATAR, then became VP Development for TOTAL E&P. I spent quite some time abroad: in the UK, in Norway, in the Middle East, Abu Dhabi and Qatar, and lately in Brazil.

For my last appointment in Brazil, I was seconded during 4 years to Petrobras as Special Adviser to the Petrobras Director of the LIBRA Project (later called Merou), a deep offshore giant Project in the presalt.

I was educated at Ecole des Mines, Stanford University, and INSEAD.
