Swiss inspection company SGS has been awarded a contract to provide offshore inspectors and third party laboratory services for Shell’s Prelude FLNG project.
According to SGS’ statement, the company will be responsible for ensuring expert support in independent quantity and quality measurements for the project.
With 488m in length and 74m in width, Shell’s Prelude FLNG is the largest facility of its kind.
Once completed at SHI’s Geoje shipyard, the FLNG facility will be towed to the Prelude gas field offshore Western Australia.
The FLNG 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.
