Isolated in the wet forest region of the Middle-Ogooué, 160 km South East of the capital Libreville, this Gabonese village borders the Batanga onshore oil field.
In 2008 Perenco provided the village of Batanga with a health centre and laid buried cables to provide 80 homes with electricity from the nearby oilfield power generators. This is a good example of how the people affected by our production activities obtain real benefits, and how we help to cement a relationship with the local authorities.
