TechnipFMC and Technip Energies set off as independent entities
TechnipFMC today officially completed its spin-off transaction to create two independent, publicly traded companies, TechnipFMC and Technip Energies.
TechnipFMC will move forward in two business segments — Subsea and Surface Technologies.
Doug Pferdehirt, chairman and CEO of TechnipFMC, stated: “As the market leader and industry’s only fully integrated pure-play, we are uniquely positioned to transform our clients’ project economics, helping them to unlock traditional and new energy resources while reducing carbon intensity and supporting their energy transition ambitions.”
Technip Energies should focus more on energy transition and deliver expertise in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), hydrogen and ethylene, and with strong positioning in key growth areas including sustainable chemistry and CO2 management.
Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, also said: “Technip Energies is a driving force to address the energy transition challenge which our industry and our world need to tackle. We believe the future of energy is shaping tomorrow, and we have a significant role to play, in line with our mission of designing and delivering added value energy solutions.”
