November 28, 2023 [Reuters]- Shell (SHEL.L) has almost finished extensive maintenance at its Prelude liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility off Australia and is set to resume exports next month, according to industry sources and shipping data.
In a sign that the work, which started in August, is near completion, the LNG tanker Symphonic Breeze has been booked to arrive at the floating facility on Dec. 6, shipping data shows.
“During the turnaround, additional scopes of work were identified and a decision made to extend maintenance to complete these scopes ahead of restart.”
The facility, some 475 kms (300 miles) off the west coast of Australia, has suffered several outages since it started production in June 2019, including a fire that led to a full power loss in December 2021.
