    Perenco confirms loss of life in Cameroon incident

    News // November 19, 2010

    Perenco has confirmed that a security incident occurred earlier this week in the area of the Moudi FSO, offshore Cameroon, involving army personnel and security contractors.

    The incident, which is currently being investigated, tragically led to the deaths of five Cameroonian personnel, three from the Bataillon d'Intervention Rapide (BIR), a national defence force involved in the security of offshore oil and gas installations, and two civilian security contractors. Perenco extended its deepest sympathies to the families of those killed.

    Perenco is currently lending support to the Cameroon authorities and said it will provide further information as and when appropriate.
