Prelude offline: Shell confirms

18 Feb 2020 5:09 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

SHELL confirmed to Energy News this afternoon its floating LNG vessel the Prelude is out of action but would not give a date for when production would restart. 

"Work continues to restore full operations on Prelude. Our focus remains on a facility that is safe, robust and reliable and we are working to restart production with that in mind," an email said.  

The offshore regulator previously said to this publication that "Shell has advised that the facility will remain shut-down for at least three weeks from last Wednesday, 12 February".  

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority issued Shell a safety notice January 22 but did not shut the vessel down. Shell took the decision in early February and told Energy News then it was unrelated to the notice.  

Mechanincal issues and power shutdowns apparently drove the production halt.  

Energy News understands half the crew remain stood down with only 180 currently on the vessel.
