Prelude FLNG will be based in the Browse Basin, Australia, some 475 kilometres (around 300 miles) north-east of Broome, Western Australia at water depths of ~250 metres.

Prelude construction is nearing completion in Geoje, where the focus remains on building a facility that is safe, profitable and reliable. Throughout 2016, the project transitioned from construction to commissioning with the team successfully commissioning key pieces of equipment such as air compressors, water cooling pumps and steam boilers.

The Australian team is supporting the commissioning of the facility, but also preparing the systems and processes for the operations and maintenance phase. There are 150 Australian production technicians working in the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard and these are the people who will man the facility once it is operating.
