TechnipFMC plc is a UK-based company that provides complete project life cycle services (conception, feasibility study, front end engineering, detailed engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, test runs, maintenance & decommissioning) for the energy industry. TechnipFMC was ranked 23rd among world's Top 225 International Design Firms in the year 2017 by Engineering News-Record.[1] It was formed by the merger of FMC Technologies of the United States and Technip of France[2] that was announced in 2016 and completed in 2017. TechnipFMC acts in three distinct segments: subsea, Offshore[3] Onshore[4] and surface projects. These projects include offshore oil and gas exploration and extraction platforms, rigs, crude oil refinery, petrochemical plants such as Ethylene,[5] Hydrogen, SynGas plants, Naptha, Benzene etc. plastics & rubber industry, fertiliser plant, onshore as well as floating LNG plants. It is headquartered in London, and has major operations in Houston and Paris where its predecessor companies were headquartered. It has about 37,000 employees from 126 nationalities and operates in 48 countries. TechnipFMC stock is listed on the NYSE and Euronext Paris exchange, and is a component of both the US S&P 500 and the French CAC 40 major stock market indices. The French government owns 4 percent stake in the company.[6]


TechnipFMC was formed through the merger of FMC Technologies Inc. and French oil-services Technip SA. On January 17, 2017, TechnipFMC announced that it is operating as a unified company after completion of the merger, which created a significant new player in an energy industry wracked by a nearly two-year slump in crude prices. The company has three headquarters in Houston, Paris and London. The CEO is Doug Pferdehirt and the executive chairman is Thierry Pilenko.[7]

Technip FMC also provides consulting and technology business through two its subsidiaries  PT and Genesis. 

Through 2016-2017 the TechnipFMC fleet expanded with the addition of four pipe-laying vessels (PLSVs) constructed under the DOF-Technip partnership, two foreign (Skandi Açu and Skandi Buzios) and two Brazilian (Skandi Olinda and Skandi Recife).[8] Another ship who entered operations was the Deep Explorer, one of the most advanced diving support vessels (DSV) in the world.[9]


Technip was certified as one of the first five companies in the world as a Global Top Employer 2015 which recognizes first-class employee offerings globally and equally, so TechnipFMC holds those credentials.[10]
