Floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) is a revolutionary technology that will allow Shell to access offshore gas fields that would otherwise be too costly or difficult to develop.
Shell’s floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility is currently being commissioned 475km north-north east of Broome, Western Australia.
Shell’s Prelude FLNG Facility recently reached a significant milestone, with gas introduced onboard. The Gallina, an LNG Carrier from Singapore, carried out the import. This cooled down the tanks and process equipment and pipework with gas. With gas onboard, Prelude’s utilities can now switch to run on gas rather than diesel.
The next step will be to test and ready the LNG plant on board Prelude in preparation for opening the wells. This is followed by a period called start-up, ramp-up. LNG will be produced after this, when it is safe to do so.
A critical part of the commissioning phase is people movements to and from the Prelude facility. This is taking place through Broome WA. Our focus is moving people safely and working together with the Kimberley communities. The Northern Territory plays a significant role in the supply chain for Prelude, through our Darwin Supply base and our contractors who manage warehousing, maintenance and logistics.
This is an exciting time for Australia. The majority of Prelude contracts have been awarded to Australian contractors and the project will provide hundreds of skilled jobs for Australians.
The safe and reliable start-up of Prelude’s operations will be our highest priority through the next phase of the project.
