The Prelude facility will be deployed off the Western Australia coast to extract and process gas from the Prelude and Concerto gas fields. The project enables the production, liquefaction, storage and transfer of LNG at sea, as well as the processing and exporting of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and condensate.
So far, around 5,000 people have been involved in constructing the Prelude facility with another 1,000 on the Turret Mooring System, subsea and wells equipment.
Diversity at Shell
The mix of Australians, South Koreans and a number of other nationalities working on the Prelude project has been a triumphant reflection of Shell’s Diversity & Inclusion plan, which aims to provide equal opportunities and create a workplace that supports its entire staff and values their differences. The company is committed to fostering an empowering, stimulating culture where people can bring their ingenuity to work as a foundation for creativity and innovation.
Not only is Shell Australia embracing this vision, it is also turning its Reconciliation Action Plan into reality. The aim is to positively contribute to Australia’s reconciliation journey by acknowledging and respecting the culture and contribution to Australia of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and recognise that true and lasting reconciliation improves prosperity for all Australians, including adding value to the Shell business.
Shell recognises that its people create value and therefore their engagement with the cultural context and alignment to the vision and strategy is a key determinant of the company’s performance outcomes.
To help the Prelude staff realise this vision, a Pride in Production programme was rolled out to help engage all employees with the project’s values: one team together; open and honest communication; learn and grow; care and ownership; continuous improvement; and leadership at all levels.
Spend five minutes talking with any one of the following Australian Prelude workers based in South Korea and it’s clear that these aren’t just buzzwords – these individuals are living them.
