Oil and Gas sector in France

Michael SALAS - 10-avr.-2014 15:22:57

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 2nd 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

LNG Exports – UBIFRANCE Information Seminar

Maria BOLANOS - 15-janv.-2013 19:22:59

  As the first half of January comes to an end, a chain of articles and post hit readers with opposing opinions regarding LNG exports . A group of petrochemical companies all natural gas users banded together saying that LNG exports would increase natural gas prices and that this in turn would hurt their operations. Yet on Sunday, January 13, FORBES published the article, Blocking LNG Exports Helps A Few, Hurts Many where it mentions a DOE study that concluded that there is “…a direct correlation between exports and economic gains: the more LNG that is allowed to be exported, the greater the net benefits to the United States economy in the form of real income”. And yet another article stated that the US shale boom would spur manufacturing growth; which is confirmed by the America Chemistry Council, calling shale gas the “game changer” that could rejuvenate America’s chemistry industry and strengthen U.S. manufacturing . Such difference in opinions leaves us with the need to further learn about Shale Gas and its impact in world economy and the industry. Therefore, UBIFRANCE is organizing a Seminar is intended to inform French companies in the Oil and Gas sector about the US and Canadian Shale Gas industry and developments . Overview and Perspectives of Shale Gas in North America Information Seminar o    Thursday March 14 th , 2013 o    From 9h00-12h00 Houston time (15h00-18h00 Paris time)   Program Overview of Shale Gas plays in North America This presentation will deal with the economic success of shale gas in the US since 2000. Success that has led to rapid development of shale gas in Canada, as well. Natural Gas Pipeline Infrastructure for Exports This presentation will deal with the need to update the US and Canadian pipeline infrastructure to accommodate new resources and export facilities. Shale Gas Play’s environmental and water resources impact This presentation will deal with the strategies and technologies that are being used or, are needed, to improve the economics of water management and environmental impact during Hydraulic Fracking. Presentation of the World impact of US Shale Gas plays This presentation will deal with the US energy’s financial impacts on the global economy. **This is a preliminary agenda; the final agenda with speakers will be confirmed in the upcoming month.
