Eduardo, Local Content and Sustainable Development a long term commitment

Eduardo, 32 years of career, 6 work profiles, 3 decades at Total. The Head of Social Responsibility at Total E&P Angola is a graduate in Drilling Engineering.

Growing up with Total

In 1981 with the energy, ambition and audacity usually accredited to the young people, Eduardo graduated in Petroleum and Gas Engineering in Romania (now Petroleum-Gas University of Ploiesti) ready to tackle the labour market in an Angola facing major challenges.

Total welcomed him, supporting him from the start, a fruitful mentorship that has lasted to this day.

As a young graduate, Eduardo started his career in his specialty, Petroleum and Gas Engineering, at the Drilling department in Total Marginal premises, in Luanda.

As his industry knowledge, professional and human experience increased, an ambition to do more and better settled.

A cross-disciplinary career

Drilling Engineering, Logistics, Finances, Contracts & Procurement are departments he served throughout the years. Between those experiences, he also received training abroad. Romania, Paris and Pau, in France and Aberdeen in Scotland were destinations for this Angolan collaborator, eager to learn to do better. Those trips were realized in different periods of time, with different goals, in new cities with new people and processes.

Today, after an exceptional cross-disciplinary career, the current Head of Local Content and Sustainable Development at Total E&P Angola manages partnerships and projects that integrate Group’s position on Corporate Social Responsibility.

Honesty, humility, sincerity, dedication and determination were keys to his successful career.

A family, a career, a job, is only the result of the commitment one makes with each project proposed and accepted. Encouraging good projects today will make a better tomorrow he .

Sharing the same values

While he celebrates over a thirty-year career at Total, Eduardo embraced today one last challenging commitment.

In his view, it was extremely beneficial to be part of a company which corporate social responsibility policy reflects the values and ambitions of its people and it is also rewarding to see the level of challenges the country where he grew up faces and to be part of the solutions in a globalized, competitive and unpredictable world.

Local content and Sustainable development are the most effective and efficient ways to develop a company and the country where it operates.

The commitment to coherent, specialized and enforceable projects of local content and sustainable development define the success of the company.

Total is among the first oil producers in Angola and worldwide.

“The dedication of each man and woman is the most valuable tool to overcome adversities and life challenges”, he states.
