According an update issued by TechnipFMC on the company’s plans to separate as TechnipFMC and Technip Energies, the company has issued a media statement saying that the market conditions have changed materially due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the sharp decline in commodity prices, and the heightened volatility in global equity markets.

The impacts of these events have created a market environment that is not currently conducive to the company’s planned separation into TechnipFMC and Technip Energies.

The company reiterated that the strategic rationale for the separation remains unchanged, and the company is committed to the transaction, and continues its preparations to ensure that the two companies are ready for separation when the markets sufficiently recover.
