Our Projects and Assets

The Crux Project

The Crux project forms an important part of Shell Australia’s gas portfolio, identified as the primary source of backfill gas supply to the Prelude FLNG facility.

Prelude FLNG Facility

At the heart of our East Browse gas portfolio is Prelude. The Prelude FLNG facility producing natural gas from an offshore field approximately 475km north-north east of Broome in Western Australia.

Prelude is a multi-decade project and will require backfill gas to maximise its operating life, the first of which will be Crux.


We are a leading natural gas producer focused on developing Queensland’s world-class gas reserves to provide cleaner energy.
