SHELL FLING - GAME CHANGER FOR LNG
When I stumbled on this video, I thought, what the heck, this can not be.
Six hundred engineers from around the world have worked on the development phase of the Prelude FLNG Project to define, design and evaluate plans for the facility.
It is designed to take the most punishing climatic conditions that mother nature can throw at it.
It is being build in Korea. It is going to become a reality.
The first steel was cut earlier this month on the project's FLNG facility's substructure at Samsung Heavy Industries' Geoje shipyard in South Korea.
The Prelude FLNG facility will produce gas at sea, turn it into liquefied natural gas and then transfer it directly to the ships that will transport it to customers.
It is expected to stay moored at its location off Western Australia for 25 years and produce at least 3.6 million tons of LNG per year.
