Commercial paper programs give the ability to access $1.5 billion and €1.0 billion of short-term financing through the commercial paper dealers, subject to the limit of unused capacity of the facility agreement. As TechnipFMC has both the ability and intent to refinance these obligations on a long-term basis, commercial paper borrowings were classified as long-term debt in the consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017. Commercial paper borrowings are issued at market interest rates.
