Singapore’s offshore marine services provider PACC Offshore Services Holdings Ltd. (“POSH”) has been awarded a contract to support Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas facility using its semi-submersible accommodation vessel the “POSH Arcadia”.

According to POSH, which won the contract with Technip Oceania Pty Ltd through its subsidiary POSH Semco, the POSH Arcadia will be deployed to provide accommodation support for the hook-up and commissioning phase of the Shell Prelude FLNG Project in the Browse Basin, off the north-west coast of Western Australia. The floatel will provide 750 beds for workers.

This is POSH’s second contract for the Prelude FLNG Project. In January 2016, the POSH Terasea joint venture, comprising POSH and Terasea Pte. Ltd., was
appointed to provide towage and positioning services for the facility – dubbed the world’s largest floating facility ever built.

The POSH Arcadia is POSH’s second semi-submersible accommodation unit. According to POSHThe 750-pax DP3 floatel is among the world’s largest such units, designed for deep water and harsh environments. The first unit, the POSH Xanadu is working for Petrobras in Brazil.
