To sustain its profitable growth, Technip will continue to invest:

 – Subsea with large projects such as Total GirRI phase 2 in Angola or CNOOC Panyu in China and with the alliance with Heerema Marine Contractors targeting the ultra deep water engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contracts with the largest J-Lay and S-Lay vessels

 – Offshore with multiple projects in Gulf of Mexico, Middle East and Asia for SPAR, Platforms, FPSO, FLNG, well supported by engineering services frame agreements with major companies such as Shell Asia-Pacific.

 – Onshore where Technip is involved in many projects in Asia, India, Middle East, Americas such as the FEED contract with Dow for its Freeport Ethylene cracker in Texas.
