AUSTIN, Texas (September 7, 2016) – Shell Australia has chosen Emerson (NYSE:EMR) to provide automation maintenance and reliability services for Shell’s Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) facility.
The size of six aircraft carriers, Prelude is the world’s largest floating production facility. It will process natural gas collected from subsea wells 475 kilometers (almost 300 miles) offshore from Broome, Western Australia.
Since 2010, Emerson has served as Main Automation Contractor on the Prelude project, responsible for process control and monitoring technologies that will help Shell operate Prelude FLNG safely and efficiently. Under the new multi-year support contract, Emerson experts working both onshore and offshore will provide ongoing reliability and maintenance services for an even broader range of equipment.
Emerson and its local business partner, Western Process Controls, will provide equipment monitoring, diagnostic services, spares support, and maintenance for the facility’s control and safety systems, as well as thousands of instruments and valves.
Prelude is under construction in Geoje, South Korea, before moving to Australia to begin operations. The facility is expected to remain on station at least 25 years as Shell and its partners develop gas reserves in the Browse Basin’s Prelude and Concerto fields.
