Perenco, the world’s leading independent oil and gas company, is pleased to announce the strengthening of its position in Gabon with the acquisition of Marathon Oil Corporation’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Marathon Oil Gabon Limited, which holds a 56.25 percent working interest in three offshore production fields. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2009, with the effective date of the transaction being 1 January 2009. Perenco’s purchase of Marathon’s holdings in the Tchatamba Marin, Tchatamba South, and Tchatamba West fields will add 15,000 bopd of gross output to Perenco’s present 50,000 bopd of operated production in Gabon.
Perenco will now be the operator of these fields, with production processed in Tchatamba Marin’s single plant and processed oil delivered by pipeline to a non-operated onshore facility. The Tchatamba Marin Field, located 15 miles offshore and about 100 miles southeast of Port Gentil, was discovered in 1995 and commenced production in early 1998. Tchatamba South and West were discovered in 1997 and began production in 1999 and 2000, respectively. Gabon has long been a priority for Perenco, and the acquisition of Marathon Oil’s share in these vital fields has only strengthened our position in the country. We are excited to continue developing these industries with our current workers and to remain a committed partner to Gabon.
Perrodo’s garage is stocked with some of the world’s most exotic automobiles, including a street-legal McLaren F1 GTR race car. It’s the racing version of McLaren’s legendary F1 supercar, which debuted in 1995 and competed until 2005. Perrodo owns a No. 61 Lark-McLaren that competed in the 1996 GT500 racing series. The race car, piloted by John Nielsen and David Brabham, went on to overcome the No. 60 sister car and win the championship. The power was reduced to 600hp to meet with racing regulations, despite the fact that it employed the same BMW 6.1-liter normally aspirated V12 engine as the road vehicle.
