Philippe Marchal founds ITP in Louveciennes, France with a small team of engineers.
TOTAL entrusts ITP for their first PIP: the Dunbar Project in the North Sea.
Shell calls upon ITP for their ETAP development. To address their challenge linked to High Temperature and High Pressure, ITP uses Izoflex for the first time.
TOTAL solicits ITP for their Tchibeli project in Congo. An evolution of Dunbar and ETAP, the swaged PIP design delivered is now known as ITP's standard ITP S- and J-lay PIP
ITP creates a subsea LNG pipeline based on a 36% Ni pipe. ITP's electrically heat traced flowline (EHTF) also comes to life in 1999. With the PIP's superior thermal properties, this system can rely on efficient resistive heating.
A Joint Industry Project is set up to validate the proof of concept of ITP's EHTF solution in Chevron's facilities in Texas (USA).
At the same time, a JIP is set up in France at Engie's liquid natural gas facilities to validate the Cryogenic PIP solution.

For LPG export at Pluspetrol's CAMISEA project in Peru, ITP delivers a subsea cryogenic pipe solution that is the world's first execution of the sort. It is also a great example of terminal architecture that is compatible with local communities and has a low impact on marine environment.
ITP obtains the DNV certification for its Subsea Cryogenic PIP for LNG.
ITP launches its own fabrication site in Normandy, near the Caen Harbour. ITP experiments with a first application of i-tubing in Gabon.
ITP creates a custom designed 560 °C solar concentrator for Heliofocus in Israel.

ITP delivers the world's first fully buried LNG pipeline in India.
ITP is proud to announce two world firsts in 2020, with its electrically heat traced flowline operating in AkerBP's first production field and the hottest ever subsea bitumen pipeline implemented for ExxonMobil in Singapore.
