"France, second largest exporter of equipment & services for the oil and gas sector"

Amelie Argenti - 19-janv.-2016 14:29:20

France is the second largest exporter of equipment and services for the oil and gas sector with no production on its territory In an interview to Business France Radio, Agnès Hagyak, project manager for oil & gas at the Business France headquarters in Paris, discusses the sector: « France doesn’t have significant O&G resources» Despite the lack of natural resources, French companies have managed to do well in the industry, both on upstream (exploration, production) and downstream (refining) levels. In this sector, France is in fact the second largest exporter in the world. The French industry relies on large companies like Total, NG (natural gas) and Technip, but also on many small and middle size companies (more than 500) covering important services within this industry, such as water treatment, telecommunications, software and security equipment. These companies’ are now looking to expand internationally by identifying countries with potential for growth to find new clients and offer their services in line with local production and envrionmental requirements. Among the target countries are the Gulf States. « In this part of the world, there are 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 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 Companies exhibiting at ADIPEC Companies in the oil and gas industry on youbuyfrance.com

COP 21 La galerie des solutions - World Efficiency

Nadine FRAYSSE-ECKSTEIN - 30-nov.-2015 20:34:47

La Galerie des Solutions : A unique exhibition of low carbon solutions during COP21 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. Intended to support the diplomatic negotiations, the Gallery will be an exhibition of low carbon solutions exclusively reserved for professionals, and its mission will be to demonstrate that solutions do exist and to accelerate their market uptake. 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… Normal 0 21 false false false FR X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Normale Tabelle"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0cm; mso-para-margin-right:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0cm; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-ansi-language:FR; mso-fareast-language:EN-US;} 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).

Renault launches a ‘car for conquest’

Business France - 23-juin-2015 15:26:44

The French automaker announced plans to start selling the 800-cc Kwid during the September-November festival season.   At a starting price of ₹3 lakh — about €4,200 or $4,500 — the Kwid is positioned on the value-for-the-buck platform and will take on Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai, the top players in this segment. Maruti’s Alto 800 starts at ₹2.83 lakh, the Hyundai Eon at ₹3.09 lakh (e-showroom Delhi).   Maruti Suzuki sells about 300,000 cars and Hyundai about 90,000 in the entry level range.   The Kwid offers a lot in terms of looks and performance, said Ghosn. Terming it an “important pillar for advancement of Renault in India”.   Built on the Renault-Nissan alliance’s new CMF-A platform, the Kwid holds the key to the company meeting the target of taking a 5 per cent share of the domestic car market, he said.   The Kwid is the product of French, Indian and Japanese talent and balances cost and features, including an SUV-like look, best in class leg-room for a compact car, and the first-of-its-kind multimedia-navigation system with a seven-inch display. Air bags are optional, he said.   According to Ghosn, the Kwid has a unique first — developed by a global manufacturer with 98 per cent localisation from Day One.   Renault now has a 1.5 per cent market share in India, mostly from the SUV Duster, its single successful offering among half a dozen models that have seen ‘moderate sales’. But all the launches have taught the company a lot in its five-year stint in India.   A couple of months back, it launched the Lodgy, a multipurpose vehicle, whose sales have just started, he said.   The CMF-A platform will serve as a pad for launching an entirely new range of vehicles by both the alliance partners Renault and Nissan, which have built a factory with a capacity of 400,000 cars a year at Oragadam near Chennai.   Primarily for the India market, the Kwid may in due course be exported to South-East Asian and neighbouring countries, Ghosn said.   Nissan will launch a Datsun brand on the same platform next year. While the platform will be shared, there will be no cross-badging of any model, he said. Both the new platform and the engine provide room for a whole line of evolution, he said.   Source : Maxime Amiot - http://www.lesechos.fr/industrie-services/automobile – 20th may 2015 - Translated by Thomas Ihle (India)
