Project Engineer Lead Cris Moreno discusses the liquid cargo transfer technology behind Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) plant, which at 600,000 tons fully loaded will be the largest floating object ever constructed.
Shell plans to moor the Prelude FLNG some 200 kilometers off western Australia at the Prelude gas field for 25 years, where it is expected to produce the equivalent of 110,000 BOE per day.
The Prelude FLNG, which analysts says may cost over $12 billion to build, is due to be producing by 2017.
