TechnipFMC has announced a donation of USD 100,000 to assist disaster relief and recovery efforts following Cyclone Idai, which made landfall in Mozambique on March 14.

The funds will be contributed to the Red Cross for ongoing rescue efforts and for shelter and basic commodities for the victims.

TechnipFMC employees in Mozambique have all been reported safe.

Doug Pferdehirt, CEO of TechnipFMC, states, “We are deeply affected by the terrible events and our priority is to support those impacted in Mozambique, and to join efforts with local authorities. This donation to the Red Cross reinforces our commitment to the communities in which we live and work. Our teams are supporting those struck by the devastation, and I am very proud of the solidarity demonstrated by our colleagues.”

Present since 2014 in Mozambique, TechnipFMC is committed to the country’s long-term, sustainable development. Last month, TechnipFMC and ENHL (National Hydrocarbon Company – Mozambique’s National Oil Company Logistic subsidiary) inaugurated the opening of new offices in Mozambique, in the heart of the capital city, Maputo. The new headquarters was set up further to the creation of a joint-venture agreement between TechnipFMC and ENHL. The ENHL-TechnipFMC Mozambique Lda Company is aimed at building the first engineering company in the Mozambican oil and gas industry with the development of national content as a major priority.
