PARIS -- February 4, 2013
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708), in a consortium with AFCONS
Infrastructure Ltd and TH Heavy Engineering Berhad, was awarded a contract by
Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC), worth approximately €220 million

platform project in the Arabian Sea, at approximately 70 kilometers South-West
of Mumbai, India.
The scope of work covers the:

will be designed for the float-over installation using the Group’s proprietary
Unideck®^(1) integrated deck installation system with the support of Technip’s
operating center in Paris, France. The project is scheduled to be completed in
the first semester of 2015.
Samik Mukherjee, Country Manager and Vice President of Technip in India,
commented: “We are very proud that ONGC chose our consortium for this
important project. Technip is a world leader in float-over operations, for the
installation of large topside decks onto fixed or floating platforms. As such,
we will utilize our proprietary float-over installation technology for this
project. This award is the first offshore project on EPCIC^(2) basis for
Technip in India. It will also be one of the rare float-over installations in
