TotalEnergies' New President of Exploration and Production to Join Africa Oil Week in Dubai
Henri-Max Ndong-Nzue

Nicolas Terraz, who has been recently appointed President of Exploration and Production and member of the executive committee of TotalEnergies, will participate in Africa Oil Week (www.AfricaOilWeek.com) in Dubai. He will deliver an opening address on Monday 8 November 2021 on TotalEnergies’ strategic position within the evolving African upstream landscape.

“TotalEnergies remains strongly committed to Africa, and we look forward to sharing and discussing our vision at Africa Oil Week in Dubai,” says Terraz.

Terraz will be accompanied by Henri-Max Ndong Nzue, TotalEnergies’ Senior Vice President for Africa, and Kevin McLachlan, the company’s Senior Vice President of Exploration. Both will take to the stage to discuss current operating trends, and outline value-creation opportunities through high-impact portfolios and new entry prospects.

This impressive line-up of speakers from TotalEnergies complements its high-profile involvement as one of Africa Oil Week’s leading sponsors. For many years, TotalEnergies has been a loyal partner of Africa Oil Week, considered as the major event of the oil industry on the African continent.

Terraz joined TotalEnergies in 2001 and was Senior Vice President for Africa from 2019 until August 2021, before being promoted to his current position.

The appointment of Ndong Nzue, who replaces Terraz as Senior Vice President for Africa, is significant, particularly in the African context. Until recently, Ndong Nzue was previously Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Americas at Total Marketing and Services, and also held the position of Managing Director of Total Gabon.
