Shell resumes shipments from Prelude FLNG off Western Australia

LNG giant Shell has resumed shipping liquefied natural gas from its 3.6 mtpa Prelude floating LNG producer offshore Western Australia following an unplanned two-day shutdown.

Shell temporarily suspended production on the giant FLNG on Wednesday, May 10, due to a trip.

“I can confirm that following the restart of Prelude, cargoes resumed on Friday, and we continue to focus on safe and reliable production,” a Shell spokesperson told LNG Prime on Monday.

The spokesperson did not provide any additional information.

In January, Shell resumed LNG shipments from the giant floating LNG producer following a fire in December.

Prior to that, production was affected due to protected industrial action which started in June 2022.

In September, Shell resumed cargo loading operations at Prelude after it reached an agreement with unions representing Prelude FLNG workers to end the long strike.

Prelude shipped its first cargo in June 2019 after several start-up delays. The FLNG has the capacity to produce 3.6 mtpa of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate, and 0.4 mtpa of LPG.

Shell operates the floating facility with a 67.5 percent stake. Japan’s Inpex holds a 17.5 percent stake, South Korea’s Kogas has 10 percent, and Taiwan’s CPC holds 5 percent.
