^4 As per IFRS, diluted earnings per share are calculated by dividing profit
or loss attributable to the Parent Company’s Shareholders, restated from
financial interest related to dilutive potential ordinary shares, by the
weighted average number of outstanding shares during the period, plus the
effect of dilutive potential ordinary shares related to the convertible bonds,
dilutive stock options and performance shares calculated according to the
“Share Purchase Method” (IFRS 2), less treasury shares. In conformity with
this method, anti-dilutive stock options are ignored in calculating EPS.
Dilutive options are taken into account if the subscription price of the stock
options plus the future IFRS 2 charge (i.e. the sum of annual charge to be
recorded until the end of the stock option plan) is lower than the average
market share price during the period.

Thierry Pilenko, Chairman and CEO, commented: “Revenues and profits for the
third quarter were in line with our expectations. Our projects in
Onshore/Offshore and Subsea continued to move forward and growth in Subsea was
particularly strong.

Order intake in the third quarter was, as in the first half, better than we
anticipated. It was diversified geographically and by size reflecting
Technip’s strong positions in key regions and range of skills, technologies
and services. The projects we are taking are long-duration, with offshore
phases in Subsea projects for example 24 to 36 months out. This gives us good
long-term visibility on our workload. This is an important trend in today’s
markets as our clients seek to lock-in key resources for their developments.

We have made two strategic moves. First, we completed the acquisition of the
Stone & Webster Process Technologies business and have now combined it with
our technology units into a worldwide organization dedicated to providing our
clients with the best range of technologies for downstream applications.
Second, we signed an alliance with Heerema Marine Contractors to serve our
clients in ultra-deepwater subsea developments. This alliance furthers
Technip's strategic objective to broaden its portfolio of capabilities in
Subsea, building on our capex program and last year's acquisition of Global
Industries to cover environments from ultra-deepwater to shore. The alliance
also fulfills our near-term requirements for high-tension vessel capabilities.

Despite the uncertain economic context, our clients remain focused on
delivering existing developments and launching new ones, a backdrop which
underpins a promising medium-term future for the oil services sector.
Technip's 2013 guidance will be given, as usual, with our annual results in
February 2013 taking into account market conditions and following completion
of our budgeting process. In this context, the volume of subsea tenders
continues at a high level, especially for larger multi-year EPCI projects. As
noted previously, the North Sea, Brazil and Gulf of Mexico markets currently
have the most momentum, whereas Asia Pacific and West Africa continue to be
the most competitive. For the remainder of this year, our focus continues as
usual on completing our manufacturing plant and vessel schedules, and
preparing the start-up phases of those capex projects scheduled for delivery
in 2013.”


1. Third Quarter 2012 Order Intake

During third quarter 2012, Technip’s order intake was €2,848 million. The
breakdown by business segment was as follows:

Order Intake (€ million)    3Q 2011    3Q 2012
Subsea                      1,127.4    1,224.3
Onshore/Offshore               1,224.5       1,623.7
Total                       2,351.9    2,848.0

Subsea order intake included several small and medium size contracts across
continents. In the North Sea, it included also larger EPCI (Engineering,
procurement, construction & installation) contracts such as Greater Stella
development in the UK and Gullfaks project in Norway to install pipe-in-pipe
(PIP). Our expertise in such technology was also key to win the Dalmatian
deepwater PIP project in the Gulf of Mexico. Our strategic positioning in the
flexible pipe market enabled us to win a good volume of work in Angola, Brazil
and Asia Pacific.

Onshore/Offshore order intake was comprised of several commercial successes
downstream, notably for the construction of Ethylene XXI complex in Mexico,
the detailed design and the licensing of ROGC ethylene cracker in India, as
well as the FEEDs (Front End Engineering Design) for Pavlodarand
Shymkentrefineries in Kazakhstan. We also signed a substantial contract for
the first EPC project of the Upper Zakum 750K development in the UAE (on which
we performed the FEED), as well as a services contract for the commissioning
of the FPSO (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading unit) and the CPF
(Central Processing Facility) of the Ichthys development in Australia.

The main contracts announced since July 2012 and their approximate value, if
publicly disclosed, are listed in annex IV (b).

2. Backlog by Geographic Area

At the end of third quarter 2012, Technip’s backlog rose to €13,518 million,
compared with €12,724 million at the end of second quarter 2012 and €10,118
million at the end of third quarter 2011.

This backlog remains well diversified in terms of project type, size,
technology and by geographic area as set out in the table below.

         the FEED was completed earlier this year and the recent EPC award,

  *Elsewhere, construction activities started on Algiers refinery in Algeria,
    while engineering and procurement services progressed on Burgas refinery
    in Bulgaria.

On August 31, 2012, we completed the acquisition of Stone & Webster Process
Technologies and have since put together over 1,200 downstream technology
specialists from both companies to create Technip Stone & Webster Process
Technology. This new entity, built around cutting edge technologies in
refining, hydrogen, ethylene, petrochemicals and GTL, offers licenses, high
value engineering services and proprietary equipment. This strengthens
Technip’s position as a technology provider to the downstream industry, and
should expand and diversify our Onshore/Offshore segment with revenue streams
from enhanced technology and high-end proprietary solutions.

Onshore/Offshore financial performance is set out in the following table:

€ million                                   3Q 2011  3Q 2012  Change

€122 million on revenue and a positive impact estimated at €13 million on
operating income from recurring activities.

Financial result on contracts recognized as revenue amounted to €2 million in
third quarter 2012.

4. Group Net Income

Operating income was €211 million in third quarter 2012, including €4 million

Financial result in third quarter 2012 included a €10 million positive impact
from changes in foreign exchange rates and fair market value of hedging
