  « 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

Oil and Gas: France is one of the world leaders

  Oil and Gas: France is one of the world leaders   There is Total and then there are the others. That is how some people blindly underestimate the Oil & Gas sector in France. Fortunately, the French landscape for this sector is far richer than that. “What people need to know is that the French offer is positioned among the leaders worldwide,” explains Agnès Hagyak, Project Manager for Hydrocarbons at Ubifrance . France’s para-petroleum sector includes over 400 enterprises and creates 55 000 jobs that are “highly qualified at the technical and scientific level,” according to Agnès Hagyak. In terms of exports, France even has the 2 nd biggest para-petroleum sector in the world, behind N° 1, the United States. France equals Norway and the United Kingdom. French suppliers account for 90% of their total turnover in exports. Total and GDF Suez, among the major players in the world, naturally draw a lot of attention. Yet there are also many French companies that are not as well known, but who deliver high performance internationally.   “France’s para-petroleum sector includes over 400 enterprises and creates 55 000 jobs that are highly qualified at the technical and scientific level”   Many of them are SMEs who display a very high level of technical expertise . These companies are a hotbed of creativity. When it comes to covering needs in technologies, in equipment and services required for exploring, producing, transporting and refining hydrocarbons, the French offer is considered as top-notch.   French know-how is especially recognized in the area of offshore and deep water drilling, in fact, for any sort of high sea platform. French companies, thoroughly international, can easily position themselves on very specific niches. They are not at all afraid of customizing their solutions. Quite the contrary!   For example, there is the Bardot Group, An SME with international presence, specialized in para-petroleum equipment. In particular, it makes tooling with technical polymers and structures that are soldered by robotic equipment, along with the development of the means to attach and assemble these structures. With such expertise on this niche market, Bardot Group has managed to work on sites in Angola, Texas, Brazil and Malaysia. And BARDOT is hardly the only French company capable of such international success.   Nexans, is a specialist in making cables required by the sector. Expert in electrical engineering (automated solutions, instrumentation and command system) CEGELEC works very successfully on international projects. There are still other players in the market: Air Liquide, Bureau Veritas, Entrepose projets, Ponticelli, all renowned companies.   www.ubifrance.com/french-exporters-directory/companies.aspx
