“I believe that to increase economic development and improve people's quality of life, we must make energy widely available,” Mariana says. “There are several ways to do this without harming the environment, through renewable energy and also through natural gas, which is the fuel for the energy transition.”
To that end, in Brazil, she has helped implement LNG terminals that made it possible to reduce national energy dependence, diversify the national energy matrix, promote firm energy to the country, and reduce carbon emissions.
“I feel energized when I visit our operational units and construction sites and see up-close everything that we developed and the result of a lot of dedication and focus,” she says. “When I see that my work has a positive impact on the lives of other people, especially women, it energizes me, too.”
