The Prelude FLNG facility is an offshore development that produces natural gas from a remote field approximately 475km north-north east of Broome in Western Australia. It prepares natural gas for export by turning it into liquid, which makes it easier to transport to customers overseas. It will produce 3.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate and 0.4 mtpa of LPG.

Natural gas is a cleaner energy solution. When used to generate electricity, it emits lower greenhouse gas than coal. This is all a part of Shell’s strategy to power progress together by providing more and cleaner energy solutions for customers.

Prelude FLNG recently reached a significant milestone, with the first shipment of LNG having sailed from the. This shipment was delivered by the Valencia Knutsen to customers in Asia.
