Associated gas will be re-injected in the reservoir. Partners in the Usan project include Chevron Petroleum Nigeria Limited (30 percent), Total E&P Nigeria Limited (20 percent and operator), Esso E&P Nigeria (Offshore East) Limited (30 percent) and Nexen Petroleum Nigeria Limited (20 percent).Usan is Chevron’s second deepwater project in Nigeria.
