Engineering company Monadelphous has been awarded a long-term maintenance and modifications services contract for Shell Australia’s Prelude FLNG project.
Under the A$200 million contract, Monadelphous will provide maintenance, brownfield modifications and turnaround services to the LNG process plant, support utilities, hull and non-process infrastructure including accommodation and control rooms, the company said in a statement on Monday.
The contract also includes the delivery of fabrication services from Darwin in support of offshore operations.
Monadelphous won the contract for an initial period of seven years with a further two 2-year extension options.
Prelude, to be located in the Browse Basin, approximately 475 kilometres north-northeast of Broome, in Western Australia, will be the largest floating offshore facility in the world.
The FLNG facility is anticipated to stay moored at location 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.
