Marine, offshore supply, and logistics player Sinwa Limited has been awarded several new supply agreements for vessels involved in Shell’s Prelude FLNG Project.
Sinwa said on Wednesday that the contracts, totaling approximately A$8 million ($6 million), were expected to begin in August 2017.
The scope of services provided under the contract includes the supply of provisions, stores, and logistics support to vessels working on the Prelude project.
The company added that the A$8.0 million amount was the most Sinwa secured for a single project in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
Bruce Rann, Sinwa CEO, said: “Against the backdrop of a highly competitive and challenging business environment, we are pleased to have secured work for this landmark project. We look forward to working closely with our business partners to ensure the success of this undertaking.’”
Sinwa will be servicing its client’s requirements through its 10,000 square meters Darwin facility, equipped with complete warehousing including freezer, chiller, provision and general storages, as well as lay down and hard stand areas.
The Prelude FLNG Project will be located in the Browse Basin, approximately 475 kilometers northeast of Broome and over 200 kilometers off the coast of Western Australia. Once completed, it will produce 3,6 million tons of LNG annually by using natural gas from the offshore Prelude and Concerto gas fields.
Earlier this month, Shell said that its Prelude FLNG is set for completion and startup in 2018, despite a fatal incident that happened at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard where the vessel is being constructed.
