In January 1996, Perenco acquired several oil fields in the area of Diyarbakir, in the Southeast of Turkey. With a net production of 5,000 boepd, Perenco is today the country's largest private oil producer.
Perenco 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 (company's know-how) and by secondary recovery with water injection.
Perenco also aims to increase its reserves by investing in an exploration programme, conducted in partnership with TPAO, the national oil company.
