From late 2010, he joined the LNG Strategy team of Total S.A. France to provide commercial support to the Group's Global LNG businesses. While in this role, he was attached to the Mahakam LNG Joint Marketing Group, under Total Indonesia, in the 22 mtpa Bontang LNG Plant. Following a short attachment with the Gas Sales team of Total E&P Norway, Godwill then joined the LNG Trading Desk of Total Gas & Power Limited in London where he worked on portfolio optimisation and several 'Sell' and 'Buy' Sale & Purchase Agreements (SPA), including, notably, the 4 mtpa SPA under the Yamal project.
