Oil&Gas industry:France is the second largest exporter of equipment and services

Romain Lonchambon - 11-févr.-2016 07:46:08

  « France doesn’t have significant O&G resources», says Agnès Hagyak,   Project Manager for Oil & Gas in the Paris head office of French export-support agency Business France, interviewed by Business France Radio. Despite this lack of resources, French companies have managed to do well in the industry, on both upstream (exploration, production) and downstream (refining) levels. France is even the second largest exporter in the world. The French industry can rely on major companies like Total, NG (natural gas) or Technip but also on many small and middle size companies (more than 500) covering many important services within this industry, like water treatment, telecommunications, software and security equipment. These companies’ goals are now to find more oil and gas clients around the world, find the right areas with interesting potential, and offer technologies adapted to new environmental and producing requirements. And among these targets are the countries of the Gulf. « In this part of the world, we have both upstream and downstream sectors, explains Agnès Hagyak. There are many things to do there.» As a matter of a fact, ADIPEC, the International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference held in Abu Dhabi in November is « a very good opportunity to find potential partners and direct clients, according to Agnès Hagyak. This show is also a way for the French to promote their services directly to customers. They must play their card well abroad. » ADIPEC, official website: https://www.adipec.com/ Companies exhibiting at ADIPEC: http://www.youbuyfrance.com/ae/companies.aspx?k=&z=&c=&ca=3&sca=72 http://www.youbuyfrance.com/ae/Events-3518-french-pavilion-at-adipec-2015-abu-dhabi Companies in the oil and gas industryare on youbuyfrance.com: http://www.youbuyfrance.com/ae/companies.aspx?k=&z=&c=&ca=3&sca=72  

February 15 to 17 2016 –VIV Middle East Africa 2016 – the specialist Feed to Food show

Romain Lonchambon - 11-févr.-2016 07:30:28

    Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy will gather in an innovative French pavilion the entire livestock sector, from feed through to meat for the first edition of VIV MEA (Adnec - Hall 6).       The Middle East offers the prospect of fruitful dialog for the livestock industry, and particularly for poultry farming. This first edition of VIV MEA, expected to be strong, to be held from February 15 to 17 2016 in Abu Dhabi, will host almost 20 French companies specializing in animal feed/nutrition and livestock equipment.   The VIV Middle East Africa exhibition provides France with an opportunity for all companies exhibiting in the French pavilion to showcase their innovations in the following areas:    Animal feed, nutrition and health,    Specialist equipment for poultry and cattle rearing: handling and slaughtering equipment, feed preparation and distribution,    Products and services for animal reproduction and poultry genetics.   The event brings together the whole of the poultry and cattle industries from upstream (genetics, insemination, nutrition and health) to downstream (slaughtering and meat processing), not forgetting breeding equipment and materials. Being one of the fastest-growing economies in the Middle East, the United Arab Emirates have a stated goal of attaining food self-sufficiency. Governments have decided to invest massively in equipment and the development of new technologies with the aim of focusing on local production, particularly in the agri-food, agriculture and livestock sectors. This policy is combined and backed by a strong consumer demand for local quality products.   Livestock now represents a significant part of agriculture, though as yet insufficient to meet the needs: breeding of dairy cattle, sheep, goats, camels and chickens is integrated alongside imports of all inputs – genetics, feeds and nutrition, veterinary medicine, equipment, etc.   Thanks to the genetic quality of its livestock and the strength of its livestock industry, France is a major breeder and a leader in the European Union for its productivity, value-added products and the global distribution of its exceptionally diverse range of breeds. France is also one of the world’s leading producers of milk and meat thanks to the vitality of its livestock which contribute to name France as an international excellence and reference in this industry. France is Europe’s leading producer of poultry, producing a combined total of just over 1.8 million tonnes in 2014 (13.5% of total production in the European Union).   Broiler breeding is an important source of revenue for the French economy, accounting almost 60,000 employees including:   • Hatcheries: 120 companies, 1,200 breeders of breeding stock and 6,500 jobs,   • Breeders: 14,000 breeders including 4,000 labels, 27,900 breeding premises,   • Feed manufacturers: 340 production facilities producing 7 million tonnes of poultry feed (33% of total livestock feed production), including 3.8 tonnes of cereal, and 4,000 jobs,   • Industrial slaughterhouses, cutters and preparers: 170 companies, 415 slaughtering facilities,   As the world’s number six exporter, France still plays a dominant role in the international stage.   Come and meet us on the French pavilion located Hall 6 at VIV MEA, ADNEC, from February 15 to 17 2016.           About VIV MEA:         Key figures 2016:    More than 220 exhibitors    More than 4,000 trade visitors from the Middle East    Organizer: VNU exhibitions    Website : www.vivmea.nl/en

  From 2nd to 9th December in the Museum of Air and Space at Le Bourget, France   The Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21) this December is intended to result in an international climate agreement to succeed the Kyoto Protocol. This agreement must be capable of driving forward the reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions so as to restrict the rise in the Earth’s mean temperature by the end of the century to 2°C above the pre-industrial level. Against this background, Reed Expositions France has been working with the General Secretariat of COP21 to organize the Galerie des Solutions [Solutions Gallery] from 2nd to 9th December in the Museum of Air and Space at Le Bourget.

Occupying an area of 10,000 m2, running for seven days, and accessible from the Blue Zone (COP negotiations zone), the Galerie des Solutions [Solutions Gallery] will present innovative solutions developed and applied by companies, industries or territories that are designed to reduce the impact of economic activities on the climate: equipment, technologies, new models of organization and reproducible best practices… Over twenty countries will be represented including: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Israel, Japan, Morocco, Norway, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, the United Kingdom,… More specifically, the Ivory Coast, one of the African countries most committed to climate questions, will have a strong presence through a stand presenting initiatives and projects in the country, a broadcast from the TV studio, and visits by numerous officials from the country. As host country, what France has to offer will take pride of place in a dedicated space at the heart of the exhibition. It is therefore planned to demonstrate solutions – including clean vehicles in a dedicated outdoor space – and to stage special events, such as themed days that are integrated into the schedule of COP21, broadcasts and interviews with companies in a TV studio (eg. daily transport programme with Fer de France), guided tours and site visits for UN delegations. Other highlights will be prestige events such as networking sessions in a dedicated lounge, business lunches, VIP receptions in the heart of Paris… It will also host the official awards ceremonies for two sets of awards. The first Climate Solutions Awards, which will carry the COP21 label. Organized by Orée, AdEME, C3D, Crédit Coopératif, Solutions COP21, the Shift Project and World Efficiency, these will provide recognition for innovative solutions put forward by French SMEs or major groups to reduce energy consumption, limit greenhouse gases and preserve resources. There will also be the ceremony for the international Green Building Solutions Awards, which will be presented for outstanding examples of sustainable construction (building, technical solutions or materials) undertaken in countries covered by Construction21 or in its partner countries. Over 20,000 professional visitors are expected: participants in COP21 (heads of state, ministers, UN delegations from 197 countries), professionals (private and public sector decision makers and specifiers, delegations invited by the organizers…) and representatives of the media (printed press, radio, television, blogs).
