BUSINESS OUTLOOK Overall Outlook - The short-term outlook for crude oil has improved. Economic activity continues to expand, driven by strong fiscal stimulus, COVID vaccinations and the re-opening of local economies. Oil prices have been supported by the industry's more disciplined capital spend, particularly for OPEC+ countries which appear to be focused on realizing a price that supports both economic growth and continued energy investment. These conditions could also provide greater price stability over the intermediate term.

Long-term demand for energy is forecast to increase. Our conversations with clients remain constructive, and we see continued improvement in the broader market outlook as investments in new sources of oil and natural gas production increase over the intermediate-term. Looking beyond the strength of these traditional markets, we believe that offshore will continue to play a meaningful role in the total energy mix, including, in renewable energy resources.

Subsea - The strength of our inbound orders in the first half of the year has been indicative of the continued offshore market recovery and expansion. Innovative approaches to subsea projects, like our iEPCI™ solution, have improved project economics, and many offshore discoveries can be developed economically at today's crude oil prices. We believe deepwater development is likely to remain a significant part of many of our customers' portfolios.

As the subsea industry continues to evolve, we have taken actions to further streamline our organization, achieve standardization and reduce cycle times. The rationalization of our global footprint will also further leverage the benefits of our integrated offering. We aim to continuously align our operations with activity levels, while preserving our core capacity in order to deliver current projects in backlog and future order activity.

We have experienced renewed operator confidence in advancing subsea activity as a result of the improved economic outlook, lower market volatility and higher oil price. With crude above $60 per barrel, the opportunity set of large subsea projects to be sanctioned over the next 24 months has expanded.

Front-end engineering and design ("FEED") activity continues to improve. FEED activity in the current year is expected to return to the more robust levels seen in 2019, which further supports our view of a sustainable recovery for deepwater. We expect at least 60% of the projects undergoing studies in 2021 to include an iEPCI™ solution, many of which could be directly awarded to our Company upon reaching final investment decision.

TechnipFMC is increasingly less dependent on larger, publicly tendered projects. •We anticipate that an increasing share of our inbound orders will result from projects that will be directly

               awarded to us, many of which may

come from our alliance partners;

•We anticipate higher activity in subsea services, with the industry's largest installed base; and

•We expect a higher mix of iEPCI™ project awards, demonstrating strong geographic diversity and new adopters of our unique, integrated approach to subsea development.

We are confident that Subsea inbound orders in 2021 will exceed the $4 billion achieved in the prior year. We expect Brazil to be the most active region of the world for new project orders, driven by continued investment in the pre-salt field discoveries. We anticipate additional market growth potential coming from the North Sea, Asia Pacific and Africa. The strong front end activity we are experiencing today should further support project award momentum into 2022.

Surface Technologies - Our performance is typically driven by variations in global drilling activity, creating a dynamic environment. Operating results can be further impacted by stimulation activity and the completions intensity of shale applications in North America.

In 2021, we expect our completions-related revenue to outperform the overall market, driven by increased market adoption of iComplete™ - our fully integrated, digitally enabled pressure control system. iComplete™ has already


achieved significant market penetration since its introduction in the third quarter of 2020, with more than 10 different customers utilizing the new integrated system.

Drilling activity in international markets is less cyclical than North America as most activity is driven by national oil companies, which tend to maintain a longer term view that exhibits less variability in capital spend. Additionally, we continue to benefit from our exposure to the Middle East, the North Sea and Asia Pacific.

In recent years, our international revenue has become a greater proportion of total segment revenue. We expect a gradual and steady recovery in well count in 2021 to drive modest international market growth, with spending increases led by national oil companies, particularly in the Middle East.

Our unique capabilities in the international markets, which demand higher specification equipment, global services and local content, provide a platform for us to extend our leadership positions. We remain levered to these more resilient markets where we expect to source approximately 65% of our full year Surface Technologies revenue in 2021.
