At the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders of Technip-Coflexip held on December 13, 2001, shareholders decided to change the company's corporate governance structure to a two-tiered structure with a management board
and a supervisory board.

With Daniel Valot as Chairman, the management board consists of Thomas Ehret, Daniel Burling, Jean Deseillingny and Claire Giraut.
Pierre Marie Valentin will serve as chairman and Michel Leveque will serve as vice chairman
of the supervisory board. Roger Cairns, Miguel Caparros, Jean-Pierre capron, Jacques deyirmendjian, Jean-Pierre Lamoure, Claude Mandil, Roger Milgrim, Rolf-Erik Rolfsen, Pierre Vaillaud and Bruno Weymuller will serve as members of the supervisory board.
Shareholders also authorized the Management Board of Technip-Coflexip to buy and sell up to 10 percent of its share capital (2,665,962 shares) at a maximum of $136 per share and a minimum price of $82 per share.
