Perenco's core business revolves around developing, in a sustainable manner, oïl and/or gas production known as mature or marginal. Based on a nimble and reactive model, which is down to the internal skills covering all the upstream oïl trades, the Groupe sets an industry standard in how it operates.

Consequently, Perenco's strategy is based on the acquisition of assets, the exploration and the development of new opportunities - where its particular know-how makes the difference, all through a responsible, long-term Policy committed to the counties in which it operates.

Affirming our singularity

On a daily basis Perenco operates its own assets, whether marginal fields, new developments or complex projects. Our difference shows in our unique familial shareholding of the company, our global approach to each individual situation, our responsiveness, and our ability to deliver the right solution for the best result.

In 2018 we started operating the East Orovinyare field in Gabon, which shows our ability to meet new technical challenges with an original and efficient approach.

Similarly our entry into Trinidad and Tobago, one of the oldest oil-producing countries with a complex geology, shows our determination to grow without any technical or geographical limit by identifying where our know-how can make the difference.

Capitalising on our know-how

The continuation of our strategy requires us to challenge industry practices. This approach is even more important in a competitive context in full evolution. Our ambition: to develop a model where the price per barrel has little impact on our activity.

Against the cycle we have re-launched our investments, reshaped our model and integrated new activities. Our new FPSO project La Noumbi is thereby representative of our ability to identify the most suitable solution to answer a particular context. 

Anticipating and diversifying our activities

As a mature field specialist we are particularly concerned by the dismantling of our oil platforms. These operations are true challenges at logistical, ecological and economic levels. We already have integrated this know-how and carried-out several dismantling operations in the North Sea.

In terms of development gas represents a real opportunity, whether in the form of gas sales for the generation of local power, or for domestic gas for the country’s needs, or LNG for export purposes, as our FLNG project in Cameroon. Perenco is not only capable of making a minor isolated field profitable, the company can also showcase technical solutions that are the first of their kind in the world.

Fostering fulfilling careers

Beyond everything else, Perenco is about women and men with assertive personalities coming from all backgrounds. In the company, both in subsidiaries and headquarters, we are strongly committed to promoting the acquisition of skills, access to responsibilities and operational experience. Our aim is to offer to every single collaborator the career that is right for him or her, by promoting atypical and enriching professional pathways.
