Watch: Final Module Lifted Aboard Shell's Prelude FLNG Vessel
Now the fun really begins as the last topsides module has been lifted into place aboard Shell’s Prelude FLNG vessel, under construction at Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea.
Once completed, this 600,000 ton deadweight facility will eventually be installed off the northwest coast of Australia where it will produce, process, liquefy, store and offload natural gas to LNG carriers. The vessel will be moored via a 4,300 ton swiveling turret designed by SBM Offshore – the largest in the world of its kind.
