VIDEO: Prelude FLNG Project
LNG player Shell posted a video showing the works on its Prelude FLNG project.
Years in the planning and now becoming a reality, the world’s first FLNG facility is under construction. Meet the team working on Prelude FLNG as they take you behind the scenes at this mega project.
Shell’s FLNG technology is an important development for the LNG industry as it reduces both the project costs and environmental footprint of an LNG development, because there is no need for long pipelines to shore; compression platforms to push the gas to shore; near shore works such as dredging and jetty construction; and onshore development such as building roads, laydown areas and accommodation facilities.
The Prelude FLNG facility is expected to stay moored at location for 25 years and is expected to produce at least 3.6 million tonnes of LNG per year, as well as Liquid Petroleum Gas and condensate for export.
Shell is leading the delivery of this mega project, working with long-term strategic partners Technip and Samsung Heavy Industries (the Technip Samsung Consortium).
Prelude is the first of what is expected to be multiple Shell FLNG projects. The expertise gained from the Prelude project will help develop potential future floating facilities.
