Cape plc, a provider of industrial services to the energy and natural resources sectors, has secured a contract with Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) in South Korea for Shell’s Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) unit. 

The contract is for the installation of insulation to the cryogenic pipework on the process topside on Shell’s Prelude FLNG.

The Prelude FLNG unit is a global project with the key location for fabrication being in Geoje, South Korea. SHI’s shipyard is where the substructure and topsides are currently under construction.

Once complete, the Prelude FLNG unit will be moored 475 kilometres north-east of Broome in Western Australia. The Prelude FLNG facility is 488m long, 74m wide and along with its contents, will weigh around 600,000 tonnes.

Commenting on the contract award Joe Oatley, Chief Executive of Cape, said: “I am delighted that Cape has been able to secure this contract and that we will be further developing our relationship with Samsung Heavy Industries. Prelude will be the world’s largest FLNG facility and we are proud to be involved with such a prestigious project.”
