There are around 11 crude oil qualities which can be marketed by the Oil & Gas Marketing Team. 

Perenco's Oil & Gas Marketing team is based in Paris and is responsible for overseeing crude marketing for the group. Crude oil volumes available for Perenco to market are around 120,000 bopd or 44 million bbl per year.

The team regularly issues tenders either for SPOT sales (e.g. Djeno, Kole, Wytch Farm, Yombo and Vasconia) or 6 month to one year TERM sales (e.g. Oguendjo, CoCo, Xan Coban, Lucina and Zarzaitine). Some other crudes are sold through long term sales agreements.

Note that Vietnamese Rang Dong and Su Tu Den crudes are marketed by PVoil through independent tenders.
