UK — Independent hydrocarbon producer Perenco Group has appointed Armel Simondin the new CEO of Perenco SA, effective March 15.
Simondin spent the first part of his career with Total (now Total Energies) before joining Perenco in 2011. His most recent position within Perenco was serving as general manager of Perenco Cameroon, prior to which he served as the group’s drilling manager.
Perenco SA says it has grown significantly in the last eight years under the management of Benoît de la Fouchardiere. He will now join the board of Perenco Group and take the lead of affiliate Dixstone, which is charged with delivering all oil and gas services (including drilling, logging, pipe laying, platform design and construction, yard management and decommissioning).
