Prelude - built to last

July 15, 2014

Prelude is the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project and is currently under construction in Korea, located in the Browse basin offshore western Australia. It will help to unlock energy sources offshore without the need to lay pipelines and build processing plants on land.

The Prelude FLNG facility will produce at least 5.3 mtpa of liquids: 3.6 mtpa of LNG – enough to easily satisfy Hong Kong’s annual natural gas needs – 0.4 mtpa of liquefied petroleum gas and 1.3mtpa of condensate (equivalent to 35,000 bbl/d).

Once complete, the facility will have decks measuring 488m by 74m and will weigh approximately six times as much as the largest aircraft carrier with full cargo tanks. The Prelude is one-quarter the size of an equivalent plant on land.
