In January 1996, Perenco acquired several oil fields in the area of Diyarbakir, in the Southeast of Turkey. With a net production of 9,000 BOEPD, Perenco is today the country's largest private oil producer.
Perenco currently operates about 100 wells and three production stations, within a 100 km perimeter. Perenco export facilities are located at the Pirinçlik terminal, which exports crude oil to the marine ports of the Mediterranean.
Production levels have been maintained thanks to successful actions of re-completion, reactivation, secondary recovery by water injection, deepening, deviations and stimulation along with a successful water-limitation programme (Water Shut Off technology).
Perenco also aims to increase its reserves by investing in an exploration programme, conducted in partnership with TP, the national oil company.
A partnership that Perenco is committed to sustain over time thanks to a local and experienced team invested in the development of the Turkish energy sector.
