Prelude FLNG moves to NW Australia

Royal Dutch Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility has left the Samsung Heavy Industries’ shipyard in Geoje, South Korea.

The facility, constructed by Technip Samsung Consortium, is being towed to North West Australia, where the next phase of the project will begin.

On arrival at the Prelude offshore gas field, 475 kilometres (295 miles) north-north east of Broome, Western Australia, pre-installed mooring chains will be lifted from the seabed and secured to the facility. Once secure, the hook-up and commissioning process will begin.

The safe and reliable start-up of Prelude’s operations will be the project team’s focus throughout the next phase. Cash flow from the project is expected in 2018.
