Perenco is currently the only oil company operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Since 2000, the company has invested heavily in new wells and has demonstrated on a daily basis the know-how and ingenuity of its teams in a very isolated context.
Perenco operates 11 fields onshore and offshore in the DRC with an average production of 25,000 boepd. The onshore drilling programme started in 2002 and allowed the commissioning of about 25 wells per year.
The total gross production is routed to the Kalamu floating terminal with a storage capacity of 1 million barrels of oil.
In 2017, Perenco optimised its drilling rig and carried out studies on reservoirs that helped offset the natural decline of its fields and maintain its production level.
Perenco is actively engaged in promoting transparency in the sector of energetic resources, as a member of the ITIE-DRC Executive Committee (Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative).
Perenco, as a leading economic player, supports many CSR actions in the fields of education, healthcare, and the environment and provides for the water and electricity needs of the 200,000 inhabitants of Muanda. The company is also involved in a major agroforestry project, with aims of the skill development and the empowerment of communities.
