Swift Networks wins Prelude FLNG communications contract
- Project & Tenders
Australian digital entertainment and communications service provider Swift Networks won a material long-term contract for Shell’s Prelude FLNG project offshore Western Australia.
Through its agreements with Shell and Nokia, Swift will deliver a broad suite of entertainment and connectivity services to Prelude FLNG for an initial period of five years.
The scope of Swift’s Prelude FLNG contract includes the design, construction and the supply of a communications system and associated infrastructure to provide entertainment services to the Prelude FLNG facility.
With 488m in length and 74m in width, Shell’s Prelude FLNG, currently under construction at SHI’s Geoje shipyard, is the largest facility of its kind.
Once completed the FLNG facility will be towed to the Prelude gas field offshore Western Australia.
It is expected to stay moored at the Prelude gas field for 25 years and is expected to produce 3.6 mtpa of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate and 0.4 mtpa of LPG for export.
