In position its coordinates are: Latitude 13° 47.2´S Longitude 123° 19.0´ E.
The radius of the Safety Zone around the Prelude FLNG facility is 1500m, as measured from the turret mooring outwards, and around 360 degrees.
The Prelude facility weather vanes 360 degrees around a turret, moored in 248 meters of water. Three stern thrusters enable Prelude to maintain an optimum heading that will facilitate offtake operations within the design limits of the facility and associated cargo transfer equipment.
It is fitted with the necessary equipment for exporting LNG/LPG via side by side mooring and loading arms and Condensate via a tandem mooring and floating hose system. It is moored to the sea bed via 16 anchor piles and chains whilst being directly connected to wells that access the gas reservoir via flexible risers routed through the turret. All reservoir, subsea control, processing, storage and loading is operated and controlled from Prelude.
