Prelude FLNG Ships First Cargo

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Shell shipped its first LNG cargo from the Prelude FLNG project. The project is located offshore Western Australia and is the world’s largest FLNG facility in operation.

The shipment marks the startup of one of the world’s most anticipated LNG projects and will raise Australia’s LNG export volumes as it ramps up capacity in the coming months.

Prelude FLNG is expected to produce 3.6 mtpa of LNG and 1.3 mtpa of condensate at full capacity.

The project is operated by Shell with a 67.5% interest in a joint venture with Japan’s Inpex, South Korea’s Kogas and Taiwan’s Overseas Petroleum and Investment Corp.
