Everyone deserves energy: A conversation with US subsea wells engineer, Ahmed Farag

October 7, 2020

“The first thing I’d say is keep your head up. That way you get to see the bigger opportunities bp offers.” In this episode we chat with US subsea wells engineer Ahmed Farag. Sharp, reflective and wise, not only does Ahmed tell us about the extraordinary world of underwater engineering, but reflects on his upbringing on Cairo, the time he saw the bp career’s team wearing Georgia Tech football jerseys and how the experiences of Hurricane Harvey prepared him and his team for working in a global pandemic. He also has plenty of advice to graduates who are thinking about joining bp, and reflects on his own transition from the world of study to the world of work.
