Prelude starts production
Dec. 25, 2018
Shell today announced that the wells have been opened at its Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) facility located 475km north-north east of Broome in Western Australia.
Prelude now enters start-up, ramp-up, which is the initial phase of production where gas and condensate is produced and is moved through the facility. Once this has concluded the facility will be stabilised for reliable production of LPG and LNG.
The focus continues to be on providing a controlled environment to ensure Prelude will operate reliably and safely now, and in the future.
The Prelude FLNG project has reached a major milestone, leaving the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje, South Korea and starting its journey to North West Australia where the next phase of the project, hook up and commissioning, will commence.
