Oscar is a petroleum engineer who graduated from the Universidad Central de Venezuela.

In 2009, he joined the Total Oil & Gas Venezuela affiliate of the Group. He filled the position of reservoir engineer in the “New Ventures” department and was part of a multi-company 2G&R team (Total, Pdvsa and Statoil) working on the quantification of a block’s resources.
