John-Paul, Drilling & Completions Engineer

John Paul, Drilling and Completions Engineer
John-Paul was the first Drilling & Completions Engineer to be recruited by Total E&P Uganda. He has undergone various trainings including the Cadet Forage at IFP in Pau, France. He is currently working as a Night Drilling & Completions Supervisor in Total E&P Qatar.

What is your experience working with Total?

I joined Total E&P Uganda on 1 May 2012 as a Drilling & Completions Engineer. In this role, I have been lucky to work with a very diverse team from all over the world. What is particular about Uganda is the environment in which we operate, we are always vigilant and watchful to operate with a minimum footprint and zero pollution in the national park.

How is your experience at Total E&P Qatar going to contribute to your professional growth?

In 2013, I spent 8 months in France for my initial training. After this training I joined Qatar. This exposure has enabled me to see many different operations within Total E&P and to also meet with some of the great experts in Total. For me this is the best experience I need to position myself for greater responsibilities and growth in Total E&P Uganda. 

What can you tell us about yourself? Any hobbies or interests?

I enjoy learning and experiencing new cultures. Finding out something new about a place or trying out a new cuisine are some of my biggest interests. I also enjoy fashion, design and film.
