Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) has announced that it has been awarded a contract for membrane cargo containment system services for Shell's Prelude FLNG facility.
Under the contract, GTT will provide support for the engineering, inspection and maintenance, as well as testing of the containment system.
The hook-up and commissioning phase of the project is currently underway, following the arrival of the Prelude FLNG facility at its location, 475 km north east of Broome, Western Australia.
Prelude FLNG has a liquefied gas storage capacity of 326 000 m3. It has 10 tanks (6 for LNG and 4 dedicated to LPG), each of which is equipped with GTT’s Mark III membrane containment system.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said: "We are very proud to continue to work with Shell on the Prelude FLNG project, building on the portfolio of innovative services we have developed. This contract is somewhat of a landmark for GTT."
