In June 1994, Gaz Transport and S.N. Technigaz, the two leading gaz naval engineering companies, have merged to constitute Gaztransport & Technigaz SAS.

This newly created Company also known as «GTT», gathers the know-how, experience and expertise in the field of LNG transportation and storage of both companies.

The merger reflects the determination of the shareholders to strengthen the development of membrane containment systems for both LNG onshore storage and maritime transportation applications by:
– gathering experience and achievements in LNG tanks design of both companies,
– extending their R & D programs and testing facilities,
– combining all their resources, and therefore to contribute to the control and reduction of the LNG transportation costs within the overall LNG chain. In addition, the shareholders will bring their financial support and technical expertise in:
– fundamental cryogenics,
– gas production, liquefaction and transport,
– civil engineering and large scale projects.

S.N. Technigaz, however, within the Bouygues Offshore group, will continue to market and perform onshore storage tanks construction based on membrane technique and LNG receiving terminals.
