TotalEnergies has appointed a new country manager to rekindle Mozambique LNG Project. The company is currently reviewing the resumption of activities at its $20 billion Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) project in Mozambique after ongoing operational delays due to the rising insurgency in the Northern region.
Considering the evolution of the security situation in the north of the Cabo Delgado province last year, Total withdrew of all Mozambique LNG project personnel from the Afungi site.
The new country manager, Maxime Rabilloud, arrived in Maputo a few days ago to replaces Ronan Bescond who will now join the Australian arm of the group.
With 22 years of experience in the French oil company, Maxime Rabilloud has solid experience to bring to a positive conclusion the Mozambique LNG Project that has been suspended since December 2020.
Rabilloud spent the last 12 years in Lusophone countries, starting in Angola as general counsel and then managed Total’s business in Brazil at various levels of responsibility, including leading the subsidiary from 2015 to 2018. Since then, he has been general counsel for Total E&P.
