About Perenco

Perenco is Europe’s first independent oil and gas company, with a worldwide portfolio of assets resulting from a unique know-how in the operation of mature fields and from an ambitious acquisition strategy.

Since Perenco was founded in 1975, the company has diversified to become the leading independent oil and gas company in Europe today. The company produces 465,000 BOEPD through its drilling, development and operations, thanks to its onshore and offshore presence in 14 countries.

Perenco’s objectives presented a unique challenge for Amillan, due to the company requiring IP telephony for offshore locations in the North Sea, where Perenco is a leading operator processing almost 15% of the UK national gas production.


The Solution

Amillan we’re initially given the opportunity to implement it’s cost-effective and high-quality annual Maintenance and Support contract for four Perenco sites across the UK. The contract consisted of services such as Problem & Incident Management, Reporting, Field Engineering, 24/7 telephone assistance and much more.

After the effectiveness of the Maintenance and Support contract, Amillan were selected to further provide upgrades to three of its offshore locations, replacing the current ageing systems with a new hybrid telephony platform. This provided native support for digital, analogue, IP, SIP desk phones to preserve phone, cabling and network investments.

The solution provided was completely modular and resilient to address the evolution of daily business, as well as the ability to expand capacity or add additional features and applications in the future. This also addressed the limitations of a restricted environment, allowing for a fully VoIP solution, or to install Analog and Digital telephony.

Amillan continues to support Perenco’s Hybrid telephony system in seven offshore and onshore locations across the UK, delivering our bespoke services to the organisation.
