Oxair contracted to power Australian gas facility

Oxair Gas Systems, specialist in the supply of on-site gas generation equipment to the Australian and international markets, has been awarded a key contract to provide technical support for the world’s largest floating liquefied natural gas facility, anchored about 200km off the western coast of Australia.
Prelude FLNG facility
The Perth-based company has won the service contract to maintain the nitrogen generator plant (built by Air Products) on-board Prelude. The Prelude FLNG facility will be 488m long and 74m wide, making it the largest offshore floating facility ever built. The facility represents a golden opportunity for the oil and gas industry to exploit gas fields which would otherwise be too costly or challenging to develop.
 

Oxair’s Managing Director, David Cheeseman commented: “Oxair is delighted to have been chosen to manage the maintenance of the nitrogen generator plant on board Prelude. The enormous scale of the project underlines the confidence which Shell places in our company.”

The FLNG facility is designed to withstand a category five cyclone and will enable the safe, reliable and continuous production of LNG, whilst moored above the gas fields, for the next 25 years.
