INPEX holds a 17.5 per cent interest in the Shell-operated Prelude FLNG facility.

Prelude is moored offshore 475 kilometres north-northeast of Broome, Western Australia.

The facility, commissioned in June 2019, is expected to stay moored at its current location for 25 years. Prelude is designed to produce 3.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate and 0.4 mtpa of LPG for export.

Prelude is Shell’s first deployment of its FLNG technology, allowing for economic access to remote offshore gas resources. Prelude has the capacity for production, liquefaction, storage and transfer of LNG at sea.

Prelude is expected to play an important role in meeting the growing demand for cleaner energy for customers around the world.
