CEO: Technip Energies to secure ‘important’ LNG contracts in next two years

Paris-based LNG engineering giant Technip Energies is “well positioned” to selectively secure “important” LNG contracts in the coming 12-24 months, according to the company’s CEO, Arnaud Pieton.

In May, Technip Energies and and Consolidated Contractors Company won the NFS LNG contract from QatarEnergy worth about $10 billion to build two “mega” LNG trains with a capacity of 8 Mtpa each.

Technip and Chiyoda previously won the EPC award for QatarEnergy’s North Field East project which includes building four trains with a capacity of 8 Mtpa in the Ras Laffan complex.

This year, Technip Energies also completed exiting Novatek’s Arctic LNG 2 project in Russia and it recently launched a modular, pre-engineered, and standardized solution for LNG production, “SnapLNG”.

Pieton told analysts during the Technip Energies third-quarter earnings conference call on November 2 that the near-term outlook for the LNG industry “remains particularly robust.”

Today, Technip Energies has about 51.8 Mtpa of LNG capacity under construction across three projects in the Middle East and the Americas.

“While we are clearly in a good position, industry trends towards more standardization, modularization, and even replication will enable us to do more with the same resource base,” he said.

More than 75 Mtpa of new LNG capacity

In March, Pieton said that Technip Energies was working on about ten LNG FEED contracts.

He said during the call that this “remains the case, even after the award of North Field South in Qatar.”

“In aggregate, this pipeline of opportunities equates to more than 75 Mtpa of new LNG capacity in either FEED and/or tendering stage,” he said.

According to Pieton, this excludes any further expansion opportunities in Qatar, with the majority of activity centered in three key regions: North America, Africa, and other parts of the Middle East.

In addition, about 20 percent of this pipeline is considering “SnapLNG”, he said.

“In summary, the LNG market remains robust, particularly in the near-term, and as a leader, we are well positioned to selectively secure important contracts in the coming 12-24 months,” Pieton said.

“And in the long-term, LNG will continue to provide Technip Energies with a solid revenue base,” he added.
