In 2014, he joined Gabon Oil Company – GOC, as a trainee to participate in the development of the company's oil assets. His sense of determination and his application allowed him to climb the ladder.

He then heads the New Strategy and Economic Intelligence Business Department where he develops and structures the acquisition strategy of non-operated oil assets including 6 million barrels per year of production. From September 2020, as Head of the Gas Department, he is leading GOC's gas strategy and Mboumba's Micro LNG Pilot Project in partnership with the World Bank's GGFR, one of the major projects of the new organization that will eventually allow GOC to decarbonize its oil production from the Mboumba permit while unlocking the value of flare gas.
