Prelude FLNG – Built to last (VIDEO)

Shell’s Prelude FLNG unit, currently being built in South Korea, will be longer than the Empire State Building is tall, and once deployed offshore, it will remain there for 25 years.

Shell has launched a new Prelude FLNG video in which one can see the process of painting of the giant structure with millions of liters of paint, also the interior design, and the cabins for the crew.

According to the video, the unit will have around 120 people on board, each with their own cabin.

The 488-metre-long-hull of the FLNG facility was floated out of the dry dock at the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) yard in Geoje, South Korea in December last year.

Once complete, Prelude FLNG will be the largest floating facility ever built. It will unlock new energy resources offshore and produce approximately 3.6 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per annum to meet growing demand.

Prelude FLNG is the first deployment of Shell’s FLNG technology and will operate in a remote basin around 475 kilometres north-east of Broome, Western Australia for around 25 years. The facility will remain onsite during all weather events, having been designed to withstand a category 5 cyclone.
Shell is the operator of Prelude FLNG in joint venture with INPEX (17.5%), KOGAS (10%) and OPIC (5%), working with long-term strategic partners Technip and Samsung Heavy Industries (the Technip Samsung Consortium).
