Regulatory News :

Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY), in a consortium led by
National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), has been awarded by Abu Dhabi
Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) the contract for the engineering,
procurement and construction (EPC) work of Umm Lulu Full Field Development
project – Package 2 (Process Facilities).

The contract, with an approximate value of US dollars 1.69 billion (Technip
share: about 35%), was awarded at the conclusion of a competitive bidding
process in which a number of EPC contractors participated.

The contract’s scope of work consists of the detailed engineering,
procurement, fabrication, offshore installation, commissioning and start-up of
a large offshore super complex comprising of six bridge linked platforms
including gathering, separation, gas treatment and water disposal facilities,
utilities and accommodation modules, totaling over 66,000 metric tons (with
associated jackets, flares, bridges and subsea composite cables). The
platforms will be installed by the floatover method developed by Technip,
which allows a high proportion of the hook-up and pre-commissioning work to be
completed onshore prior to load-out, and thereby significantly reduces both
the duration and cost of the offshore commissioning phase.

Technip will be responsible for the engineering of the project and will share
the procurement and commissioning works with NPCC. NPCC will be responsible
for the fabrication and installation of the facilities. The project is
scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2018.

Vaseem Khan, Senior Vice President of Technip in the Middle East, declared:
“This award confirms our world leading position in offshore engineering as
well as floatover operations and strengthens our continuous involvement in
major offshore projects in the UAE, where we have been present for more than
30 years. We are proud to contribute to ADMA-OPCO’s offshore complex as it
will be the largest in the region.”
