The Prelude FLNG facility will produce natural gas off the coast of Australia.
Shell’s floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, Prelude, recently reached a significant milestone when gas was introduced onboard for the first time. The Gallina, an LNG Carrier from Singapore, brought the gas to Prelude. With gas onboard Prelude’s utilities can now switch to run on gas rather than diesel. Once fully operational, the project will deliver LNG to Shell’s customers around the world.
