It will remain onsite during all weather events, having been designed to withstand a category 5 cyclone. Production from the Prelude field is expected to start later this year.The Prelude FLNG project is operated by Shell in joint venture with Inpex (17.5%), KOGAS (10%) and OPIC (5%).Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more
