Building on over 35 years of the industry’s most
dependable acoustic mooring release technology.
( 1,600-ft) long and 74-m (273-ft) wide vessel
will be permanently moored in 250 m of water
in the Browse basin for 25 years.
On arrival, 16 pre-positioned mooring
chains will be lifted from the seabed and se-
cured to the vessel’s 93-m (305-ft) high turret.
Once secure, the hook-up and commission-
ing phase of the project will begin, which
is expected to take nine- 12 months. Seven
production wells will feed gas and condensate
from the reservoirs via four flexible risers
into the facility. All subsea connections join
the facility via the turret. According to Shell,
the turret’s swivel design enables the facility
to pivot according to wind and sea conditions
while it remains fixed to the seafloor. The
Prelude FLNG facility is expected to produce
3. 6 mtpa of LNG, 1. 3 mtpa of condensate, and
0.4 mtpa of LPG.
The Prelude FLNG project is operated by
Shell in joint venture with INPEX ( 17.5%),
KOGAS (10%), and OPIC (5%). FID was taken
in May 2011. According to Shell, cash flow
from the project is expected in 2018.
As for the country’s other potential LNG
projects, Woodside continues to target the
development concept selection by the end of
the year and front-end engineering and design
in 2019 for Browse. The Browse Joint Venture
and the North West Shelf (NWS) Project are
progressing commercial discussions and joint
technical studies on the feasibility of NWS in-
frastructure processing the Browse resources.
The proposed offshore development concept
involves two FPSOs delivering 10-12 MMt/yr of
processed gas to existing production facilities.
Development concepts comprising either
an FLNG facility or use of existing LNG pro-
cess infrastructure on the Burrup Peninsula
continue to be investigated and assessed
for the Scarborough project. According to
Woodside, assessment of the NWS Project’s
proposal to process the resources through
NWS infrastructure is ongoing by the Scar-
borough Joint Venture. •
