Following five years in the UK, Jean-Luc Guiziou, Managing Director for TotalEnergies E&P UK and the company’s UK Country Chair leaves to take up a new role as Senior Vice President for the Exploration and Production business across Europe for TotalEnergies. As such, he becomes part of the Exploration & Production Management Committee, based in Paris.

Nicolas Payer takes up the role of Managing Director for the UK E&P business on 09 January. Nicolas has been with TotalEnergies since 1992 (joining Elf, as it was) and has built his experience at HQ level and through a number of international assignments, including E&P. He joins the UK business from TotalEnergies’ Global Procurement team where he has been President since 2019.

Jean-Luc Guiziou came to the UK in 2017 to support the transition process following the acquisition of Maersk Oil by Total. The two organisations formally merged on 02 July 2018, and he became Managing Director of the new organisation, succeeding Elizabeth Proust.

Commenting on his time in the UK, Jean-Luc said: “The last five years have been incredibly fulfilling as we built our new business following the merger. Since then, and as a team, we have grown and changed, responded to the climate challenge, contributed to the energy transition and navigated work during a global pandemic. I am very proud of what we have achieved here in the UK, both as TotalEnergies and an industry, and I want to thank our teams for their support and dedication during this time. I offer Nicolas my best wishes and support in his new role, and look forward to seeing how the UK E&P business continues to prosper under his leadership.”
