Aberdeen-based engineer, EnerMech, has been awarded a pre-commissioning subcontract by Technip Oceania, a TechnipFMC company, for the Shell-operated Prelude FLNG project.
Under the contract, EnerMech will work on the pre-installation filling of the risers, riser leak testing, pressure monitoring of the umbilical and electrical steel flying lead during pipelay, and electrical flying leads and umbilical testing.
Works will be conducted in-field, located approximately 230 kilometers from mainland Northwest Australia, with engineering and project management conducted from EnerMech’s Perth Australia facility, the company said in its statement on Tuesday.
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.
