Regulatory News :

Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) announces that its
operating center in Rome, Italy, has signed an agreement with China Huanqiu
Contracting & Engineering Corporation (HQC)^(1) to set up two joint-venture
companies. Headquartered in Rome^(2) and Beijing^(3), China, they will be
responsible for procurement activities, respectively on the European and
Chinese markets.

These companies will perform procurement activities for worldwide onshore and
offshore projects.

By establishing a local presence, and thus eliminating the cultural and
language barriers, these new companies will allow an immediate knowledge and
access to the local suppliers market, based on Technip and HQC’s experience.

Marco Villa, Senior Vice President of Technip Region B^(4), commented:
“Formalizing our cooperation with HQC, with which we have been collaborating
for 25 years, will help us expand business development opportunities on the
international oil & gas market, especially in China, and deliver added value
to our clients.”

Wang Shihong, President of HQC, declared: “With those two new companies, we
will take advantage of the existing synergies between HQC and Technip to
facilitate and increase commercial access to the European and Chinese markets:
we will benefit from Technip's multi-local network of European suppliers and
vice versa.”
