First series of international successes with the completion of projects in Africa and Asia


Technip becomes an international group with the creation of an office in Rome and the creation of Technip Geoproduction, a subsidiary specialized in hydrocarbon field equipment. During this period, Coflexip – a firm specialized in the design, manufacture and supply of flexible subsea flowlines– is created by the IFP (French Petroleum Institute) and opens a flexible flowline manufacturing plant in Le Trait, France, as well as offices in Houston, Aberdeen and Rio de Janeiro.


Technip expands its global presence and opens operating centers in Kuala Lumpur and Abu Dhabi. Coflexip opens a second flowline manufacturing plant in Brazil and branches out into the manufacture of umbilicals with the establishment of the Duco plant in Newcastle, UK.


Technip is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange and Coflexip is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Coflexip acquires Stena Offshore while Technip becomes a world-leading engineering group through the acquisition of companies with strong technological expertise: Speichim, Krebs and KTI. Established in the United States, KTI enables Technip to set up in North America.


Coflexip acquires Aker Maritime’s Deepwater Division. Technip merges with Coflexip and the unified group becomes a world leader in engineering, technologies and services for the oil and gas industry. Many major contracts are signed, notably in the Middle East in the liquefied natural gas (LNG), ethylene and refining sectors.

In October 2007 Technip’s operational organization evolved to better serve the Group’s strategy: Business development activities, projects, engineering and construction resources, all operational assets and support and technological development resources now fall under the authority of the Chief Operating Officer. Seven regional operating units that are fully accountable for their own operational and financial results were created: North America, Asia Pacific, Brazil, North Sea-Canada, Middle East, Region A (Western Europe, Africa) and Region B (Italy, Eastern Europe, Russia, South America). These operating units receive support from global product lines and a specific Subsea business unit was created at the corporate level. The Regions, Product lines and Business Unit all report to the Chief Operating Officer. A New Technologies Department is responsible for coordinating Technip’s actions to anticipate and develop future technologies. The Functional Divisions – Finance and Control, Human Resources, General Counsel and Communications provide support to all Divisions and operating centers.
