Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) was awarded by Statoil an
engineering, procurement, construction and installation lump-sum contract for
the Norne field development, located in the Norwegian Sea at a water depth of
approximately 380 meters.

The contract covers the:

  *engineering and fabrication of two flexible smoothbore gas export risers*,
  *marine operations to remove one existing roughbore riser connecting the
    Norne floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit with the gas
    export pipeline, and replace it with one of the new flexible smoothbore
  *provision of the second flexible smoothbore gas export riser on a reel to
    Statoil as spare for future use.

Technip’s operating center in Oslo, Norway will execute the contract which is
scheduled for completion in the second half of 2014. Fabrication of the risers
will take place in the Group’s Flexi France plant in Le Trait, France.
Offshore installation will be notably executed with the Normand Progress, a
flexible pipelay vessel from Technip fleet.

Technip’s patented leading flexible smoothbore riser technology eliminates
noise and vibration issues, reduces pressure losses as well as need for
compression (being an overall benefit to the environment) and helps increase
the overall capacity of the system.


* Riser: a pipe or assembly of pipes used to transfer produced fluids from the
seabed to surface facilities.
