In July 1997, at the end of her internship on a gas storage theme, Virginie was recruited as a geological engineer in the Research Department of the Underground Reservoirs Department and worked on the southern gas basin in the North Sea.
At the end of the 2000s, EDF-GDF rethought its strategy and began to focus on upstream exploration and production activities. For two years, she piloted the Sidexpro project, a data management tool for the geosciences teams, developed the intranet and worked on a support project: Information Management System. Two years later, still within the same department, Virginie took responsibility for the Information Systems of the Operations Department.
In 2009, Virginie made a change of direction and became Manager of the Professional Customers Market. She then took over responsibility for a client base of around one hundred people, both in-house and externally.
Since June 2013, Virginie has been Asset Manager on projects in North Africa. There are four stages in the life of a project: acquisition, exploration, development and production. Once the acquisition is made, the Asset Manager is mainly involved in the exploration and development stages. She represents ENGIE in front of the operators and partners, within the framework of a Joint-Venture. She defends the company's interests, ensures that the operator follows the recommendations, that the project is in line with the contract and that the decisions taken are relevant. "
