PARIS -- June 5, 2013


Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) was awarded a
substantial^(1) lump-sum contract by Exxon Mobil Corporation for the
development of the Julia field. This field is located in the Walker Ridge area
of the Gulf of Mexico, at a water depth of approximately 2,100 meters (7,200

The contract covers the project management, engineering, fabrication,
installation and pre-commissioning of more than 48 kilometers of 10.75-inch
outer diameter insulated flowlines^(2), steel catenary risers^(3) and flowline
end terminations.

Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, will perform the overall project
management, with detailed flowline design being completed by Genesis,
Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary. The flowlines and risers will be welded at
the Group’s spoolbase in Mobile, Alabama. The offshore installation is
expected to be completed in 2015 by the Deep Blue, one of Technip’s deepwater
pipelay vessels.

David Dickson, Technip’s Senior Vice President, North America Region, has
declared: “Following the award of the Hadrian South natural gas project by
Exxon Mobil Corporation in 2012, this new project further reinforces our
leading position in the Gulf of Mexico ultra-deepwater market.”
