DOF Subsea Australia has been contracted by TechnipFMC’s Australian unit to provide its multipurpose support vessel, Geoholm, for Shell’s Prelude FLNG project.
The Geoholm will be required to provide ROV and light construction support services to TechnipFMC in Australia for the Prelude FLNG water intake riser installation, the company said in its statement.
With 488m in length and 74m in width, Shell’s Prelude FLNG, currently under construction at SHI’s Geoje shipyard, is the largest facility of its kind.
Once completed the FLNG facility will be towed to the Prelude gas field offshore Western Australia.
It is expected to stay moored at the Prelude gas field for 25 years and is expected to produce 3.6 mtpa of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate and 0.4 mtpa of LPG for export.
