Perenco response to articles regarding local communities’ protests against alleged environmental damage of Perenco’s operations in Orellana, Ecuador

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to set the record straight. Perenco applies state of the art technologies and the highest health, safety and environmental standards to all of its activities and operations...mostly to respect the environment and the communities living nearby the areas in which the Company operates...The allegations about damages to the environment caused by Perenco Ecuador, in the area surrounding the Punino 1 well located in the Coca-Payamino field, are false...The water injection pipeline currently meets all safety, environmental and health guidelines and is fully compliant with Ecuadorian rules and regulations...On June 19, certain members of the communities trespassed the Coca station...In view of the illegal occupation of the Coca station, the Army decided to intervene and use public force and took over the Coca facilities arresting Mr Jimenez, one of the protesters, in the process.
