John-Paul, Drilling & Completions Engineer



John-Paul was the first Drilling & Completions Engineer to be recruited by TotalEnergies EP 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 TotalEnergies EP Qatar.

What is your experience working with TotalEnergies?

I joined TotalEnergies EP 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 TotalEnergies EP 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 TotalEnergies EP and to also meet with some of the great experts in TotalEnergies. For me this is the best experience I need to position myself for greater responsibilities and growth in TotalEnergies EP 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.
