Prelude FLNG on its way to Australia

Engineering and maintenance services provider EnerMech has been awarded a five-year contract for hose and hose fittings supply and services at Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility in Western Australia.

The Prelude FLNG contract will be administered from EnerMech’s Henderson base in Perth, while engineering and service support will be provided from regional facilities across Australia, including Darwin in the Northern Territory.

EnerMech regional director Allan Hart said: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of EnerMech as the hose integrity management and supply contractor on the prestigious Prelude FLNG Facility.

“This latest award strengthens EnerMech’s reputation as a leading maintenance service provider with a willingness to adapt to the changing oil and gas environment.”

The Prelude FLNG facility recently arrived at its location 475km north east of Broome where the hook-up and commissioning phase of the project is under way.
