VIDEO: Shell’s Prelude FLNG falls into place


Shell, an Anglo–Dutch multinational oil and gas company, has released a new video showing its Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project taking shape. 

According to Shell, Prelude FLNG will liquefy natural gas at sea and it is the world’s largest offshore floating facility. The first site to use Shell’s FLNG will be the Prelude gas field, located 200 kilometres offshore Australia’s north-west coast.

Piece by piece, 14 gas plant modules have been built on a quayside, then carefully lifted on to a giant hull. Now, the last module is ready for installation and Prelude is taking shape, Shell said in the video.

Didrik Reymert, Prelude FLNG Project Director: “Getting the last module is a real accomplishment by everybody. And from now on progress won’t be that visible, but on the other hand there’s a lot of work to do still.”

Shell says that Prelude will produce approximately 3.6 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas per annum. The facility’s storage tanks will be below deck. They can store up to 220,000 m3 of LNG, 90,000 m3 of LPG, and 126,000 m3 of condensate. The total storage capacity is equivalent to around 175 Olympic swimming pools.
