Shell's Prelude FLNG Facility begins journey to Australia

29 Jun 2017 11:46 AM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

Shell Australia’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility left the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje, South Korea this morning, marking a significant milestone for the project. The facility, constructed by Technip Samsung Consortium, is being towed to North West Australia, where the next phase of the project will commence.

On arrival at the Prelude offshore gas field, 475 kilometres north-north east of Broome, Western Australia, pre-positioned mooring chains will be lifted from the seabed and secured to the facility. Once secure, the complex hook-up and commissioning process will begin.

The safe and reliable start-up of Prelude’s operations will be the project team’s focus through the next phase.
