Giant Prelude FLNG facility due in Browse within weeks

Written on the 14 June 2017

Shell has announced its giant Prelude floating liquefied natural gas FLNG project was just weeks away from reaching the offshore Browse Basin, about 475km north of Broome.

At a public information session in the Kimberley town tonight, Prelude vice president David Bird told about 100 people what role the town would play in the operation and how the floating technology would work.

Broome Airport will be used as the helicopter base for Shell contracted flights to and from the oil and gas fields, along with Inpex for its Ichthys project.

Mr Bird said the FLNG facility was expected to arrive in the Browse in July or August this year.

He said the complex hook-up and commissioning phase was expected to take nine to 12 months and that the company expected project cash flow from the project during 2018.
