Shell’s Prelude FLNG ships another cargo

Shell’s Prelude FLNG offshore Western Australia has exported another cargo since February last year when it stopped production due to an electrical trip.

To remind, the giant floating LNG producer shipped the first cargo in almost a year earlier this month via the 147,600-cbm Symphonic Breeze.

The newest shipment departed Prelude on Tuesday onboard the 155,300-cbm Oceanic Breeze, its AIS data shows. The vessel owned by Shell’s Prelude partner Inpex and K-Line is heading towards Japan.

A Shell spokesperson declined to comment on the shipment as the company doesn’t discuss specific commercial matters.

Shell confirmed the resumption of LNG production activities on January 11 adding that Prelude is a multi-decade project, and the firm’s focus remains on delivering “sustained performance over the long-term.”

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.

Moreover, Shell operates the floating facility located some 475 km from Broome in Western Australia, with a 67.5 percent stake.

Japan’s Inpex holds a 17.5 percent stake, Korea’s Kogas 10 percent, while Taiwan’s CPC holds 5 percent.
