Shell confirms TSC for Prelude LNG floater

Offshore staff

PARIS – Shell Development (Australia) has authorized the Technip Samsung Consortium (TSC) to start work on the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility.

TSC will provide engineering, procurement, construction and installation for the facility, which will be moored at Shell’s Prelude gas field 200 km (124 mi) offshore northwest Australia. It will produce gas offshore and liquefy it onboard by cooling.

Technip’s operating centers in Paris and Kuala Lumpur will undertake detailed design, while the vessel will be built at the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in Geoje, South Korea.

The Shell Prelude FLNG vessel will measure 488 m (1,601 ft) from bow to stern, and when fully loaded will weigh around 600,000 metric tons (661,387 tons).
