Shell starts Prelude testing

The Australian Financial Review reported Royal Dutch Shell CEO Ben van Beurden announced to investors that LNG and liquified petroleum gas have been introduced to the Prelude plant in preparation for commissioning, with testing now under way.

Located in the Browse Basin 475 km northeast of Broome, the Prelude FLNG project is the largest offshore facility ever constructed.

The facility has a production capacity of at least 5.3 mtpa of liquids, including 3.6 mtpa of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate and 0.4 mtpa of liquified petroleum gas.

Yields from the facility will be directly exported from the vessel by visiting tankers.

Shell has a 67.5 per cent interest in the venture; partners Inpex (17.5 per cent), CPC (5 per cent) and KOGAS (10 per cent) round out the remaining stake.
