Jumbo's J-class vessels Jumbo Jubilee and Fairpartner were scheduled to transport 16 piles to Shell's Prelude field, site of the world's first FLNG vessel, off the coast of northwest Australia. On 2 October, 2015 the first piles were loaded by the Jumbo Jubilee crew and on 26 November, 2015 the project was completed as the Fairpartner crew offloaded the last of the 16 piles onto the cargo barge.

The FLNG vessel will be moored with a total of 16 anchor lines. The anchors in this system are steel, each 62m long and weighing over 650-tonne each and produced in the Aviles area (Spain). Jumbo was contracted by Technip to transport these 16 piles from Aviles to Batam in Indonesia. Once there, the piles are transferred by Jumbo to cargo barges, which will be taken to the installation vessel for installation.  

The Technip-Samsung consortium is contracted for the design, construction and installation of the floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility for the Prelude field.
