Total USAN FPSO Topsides

Offshore Fabrication
About This Project

In June 2008, Nigerdock was awarded the fabrication of 7,500 tons of structural steel components to be integrated onto the Total Usan FPSO vessel. The award package included the laydown module area comprising modules P1 and S1, module P4, 15 sets of pressure vessels, the fabrication of the helideck and its support, the flare tower, the riser protector structures, the boat landings, the mooring protection structures and the water caissons.


A total of 30,000 man hours of training was expended in the training of welders and fitters in a special training program conducted between October 2008 and March 2009. Also, an additional five trainee engineers were assigned by the NNPC’s Nigerian Content Division to Nigerdock for a special on-the-job capacity building program.
