DOF Subsea Australia has been awarded a contract by Technip Oceania, part of TechnipFMC, for the provision of multipurpose support vessel (MSV) Geoholm for Shell's Prelude FLNG project.
The Geoholm will be required to provide ROV and light construction support services to TechnipFMC in Australia for the Prelude FLNG water intake riser installation.
Shell’s Prelude floating LNG (FLNG) facility is expected to enter production during 2017/18.
Technip was awarded an engineering and project management services contract by Shell Australia.
The contract will provide multi-disciplinary engineering and design services in support of the Prelude FLNG project, and will allow the smooth delivery of brownfield engineering scope as the project moves into operations.
The size of six aircraft carriers, Prelude is the world’s largest floating production facility. It will process natural gas collected from subsea wells 475km (almost 300mi) offshore from Broome, Western Australia.
