Italian oil services company Saipem was in talks with rival Subsea 7 several years ago over a possible tie up but negotiations fell through, the group's CEO said on Wednesday.

"Some 3-4 years ago, before I became CEO there were contacts and talks that did not work out," Stefano Cao said on a call on second quarter results.

Cao said there was nothing in this direction today.
