Prelude FLNG loads second cargo
The Hague-based LNG giant Shell is currently loading the second cargo of the chilled fuel from its Prelude FLNG facility located 475 km North East of Broome in Western Australia.
In a brief statement through its social media, Monaco-based LNG shipper GasLog showed its tanker Methane Julia Louise docked by the side of the Prelude FLNG.
According to the shipping data provided by VesselsValue, the vessel capable of transporting up to 170,000 cubic meters of the chilled fuel docked at the facility on June 5 and is already in the Banda Sea off Indonesia.
Shell shipped the first cargo from its Prelude FLNG last month.
The Prelude FLNG facility is operated by Shell in joint venture with Inpex (17.5 percent), Kogas (10 percent) and OPIC (5 percent).
The company opened the wells in the fourth quarter last year, supplying gas to the Prelude FLNG, the largest of its kind.
The FLNG facility is expected to stay moored at the Prelude gas field offshore Western Australia for 25 years. It is designed to produce 3.6 mtpa of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate and 0.4 mtpa of LPG for export.
