Shell marks Prelude milestone: FLNG facility arrives in Australia By Martin Kovacs, 25 Jul 2017

Shell has advised that the Prelude project FLNG facility has arrived in Australian waters.

Shell Australia Chairman Zoe Yujnovich stated that its “arrival is a clear demonstration of Shell’s long-standing commitment to investment and development in Australia – delivering significant economic benefits to the nation”.

“Prelude is an Australian project and Shell has recognised how important it is to build strong partnerships with Australian industry,” Yujnovich commented.

“To develop and maintain a safe, high-performance culture on the facility, Shell has partnered with South Metropolitan TAFE in Western Australia to develop specific training for Prelude technicians. One hundred and fifty technicians have been trained across a broad range of critical skills, including helicopter landing and refuelling skills, rigging, scaffolding and first aid.

“West Australian-based company Civmec, a construction and engineering services provider, constructed the four massive anchor piles for Prelude’s subsea flowlines from their facility in Henderson.”
