Royal Dutch Shell has given the green light to the Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) Project in Australia, which will be the first of its kind. Moored 200 km from the Australia coast, the FLNG facility will produce gas from offshore fields and liquefy it onboard by cooling. Constructed in a Korean shipyard, it will be the world’s largest floating offshore facility. From bow to stern, the Prelude FLNG will be 488 m long, longer than four soccer fields. When fully equipped and with its storage tanks full, it will weigh around 600,000 tonnes (metric tons)—roughly six times as much as the largest aircraft carrier. Some 260,000 tonnes of that weight will consist of steel.
