Founding spirit

BOLD FROM THE BEGINNING.Our founder, Hubert Perrodo, was a man ahead of his time. Perenco was created from his entrepreneurial vision, after he found a gap in the market in mature oil and gas fields. The son of a French fisherman, he started a rental company for service barges in 1975. Going onto become a ship-owner in his own right. In 1981 he founded the drilling company Techfor, reselling it in 1992 to focus on the acquisition of oil and gas interests. Perrodo Energy Company - Perenco - was born, with Hubert quickly focusing on the operation of mature and marginal oil fields. perenco TODAY.His relentless capacity for transformation means we are now a leading international independent hydrocarbon company. We're a growing family business, still guided by his core values: responsibility, excellence and passion. Hubert’s son, François, took over in 2006, pushing our engineers to innovate and putting operations back at the heart of the business. As well as further expanding the company in the Caribbean, Central Africa, Latin America and South East Asia. Leading us successfully through global financial crisis, including the price of a barrel of oil hitting historic lows, and the Covid-19 pandemic.

This growth mindset has been reinforced under the leadership of his son François. While we’re future-focused, we’re incredibly proud of our journey so far.

Strategy

After 30 years of technical and geographical adventures, a new cycle is opening now for Perenco. Gas will be more and more important in the company in accordance with the host countries’ energy transition policies. We’ll do more locally to support its development and more internationally to feed it with new innovations. We know there is much more that can be done in these countries and with these fields. There are unlimited resources to be found in what already exists, is a good way to summarize our next chapter.

Our people

Our teams continue to find simple, practical solutions to complex technical problems related to exploration and production of oil and gas. Since 2016 we’ve been developing the business by being bolder in the way we work across the value chain, from exploration to decommissioning, without compromising on our integrity or the safety of our people and the environment. We are constantly improving our knowledge base, by making training more accessible and adapted, as well as deepening our innovative techniques in drilling, construction and production. We’ve created new jobs - jobs of the future - to support this growth. This has allowed us to really cement our company savoir-faire, to share skills and increase awareness of Perenco’s core values in our teams around the world.

Being independent

We can’t let oil prices dictate how we approach problems in our sector. We must find solutions, no matter what, it is a technical decision, not a financial one. We have to stay independent and future-focused, and for that we rely on the expertise of our teams across the lifecycle of our sites. Keeping annual investment at the appropriate level ensures the renewal of reserves and keeps oil and gas production delivery consistent.

Working responsibly

Day-to-day Perenco is 100% committed to its stakeholders’ priorities, leading by example in safety and environmental protection. Our made-to-measure approach on each of our sites reduces the effect we have on the ecosystems that surround them. Our most important resource is our people. We bring out local resources and support their development over time. We have breathed new life into old platforms by recycling. Where needed, we’ve created state-of-the-art solutions on sites - which reduce the overall impact of our projects. We have patented many of our innovations. We have diversified into decommissioning to restore oil and gas installations to their original state, with projects in the North Sea and Africa. We have a positive impact at a local level. We participate in the development of host countries by completing projects of national interest in oil and gas but also by providing the products that they need (LPG, Gas to Power, Gas to Industry). We help communities become more self-sufficient through projects such as fish farming, agroforestry, and by helping to improve healthcare and infrastructure.

Future-focused

Being responsible, as well as bold, is essential. The challenges are bigger in tougher environments. When we take over a new field, we rethink everything. This is key for the future. Social and environmental impact is always at the top of our list of priorities. We know we still have a lot more to do and a lot more to discover. We’ve proved that being bold and being a good partner generates resources that were not accessible before.

This report demonstrates our determination to responsibly produce oil and gas at the lowest possible carbon emission cost, while contributing to the development of our host countries. With the objective to continuously improve, we aim to align our report with international ESG reporting standards (GRI, IPIECA, SASB). In particular, we have initiated the process to obtain an independent assurance statement on our Sustainability Report. Sustainability was at the core of our activities long before it became a global concern and the ESG reporting trend started to develop.
