The Prelude FLNG facility has arrived at its location, the Prelude field, 475km North-North East of Broome. 16 pre-positioned mooring chains will now be lifted from the seabed and secured to the facility. Once secure, the hook-up and commissioning phase of the project can commence which is expected to take between 9-12 months.
A critical part of the hook up and commissioning phase of the Prelude FLNG project will be people movements to and from the Prelude facility. This will take place through Broome WA. Our focus is moving people safely and working together with the Kimberley communities.
The Northern Territory will play a significant role in the supply chain for Prelude, through our Darwin Supply base and our contractors who will manage warehousing, maintenance and logistics.
This is an exciting time for Australia. The majority of Prelude contracts have been awarded to Australian contractors and the project will provide hundreds of skilled jobs for Australians.
The safe and reliable start-up of Prelude’s operations will be our highest priority through the next phase of the project.
