Paris-based Perenco has no clear timeline of when it will lift force majeure on oil offloading operations at its Cap Lopez terminal in Gabon after last week’s leak of 300,000 barrels of crude from a storage tank.

The terminal is located about 20 kilometres north of Gabon’s oil hub of Port Gentil at the tip of Cap Lopez peninsula and is a key export outlet for the likes of Total Energies, Maurel & Prom and Sinopec-owned Addax Petroleum.
