Fabrication Solutions for Offshore

Fabrication Solutions for Offshore, Subsea and Deepwater Projects


Oil and gas clients look to Fluor for solutions to design and build offshore, subsea, and deepwater production facilities in challenging locations around the world. To meet that challenge, Fluor has developed offsite fabrication strategies to mitigate the issues associated with building these structures on location.

Fluor operates self-perform fabrication yards strategically located to serve global markets. Self-perform fabrication yards may be adjacent to the site or at remote locations, reducing onsite craft requirements and shifting work to safer and more controlled work environments. Fluor seamlessly links fabrication and construction into the design and procurement cycles of an offshore project during FEED and incorporates health, safety, and environment (HSE) and quality programs at all levels. Typical offsite fabrication options for offshore, subsea, and deepwater industry clients include:

  • Topsides / Topside Modules
  • Compliant Towers
  • Gravity-Based Structures
  • Jackets and Hulls
  • Semi-Submersibles
  • Tension Leg Platforms
  • Living Quarters
  • Mobile Offshore Production Units (MOPUs)
  • Subsea Manifolds / Modules
