Mitsubishi to Supply Compression for Australian LNG Plant
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corp. (MCO) has received orders for three compressor trains and a power generation system to be used at the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas production, storage and offloading facility (FLNG).
Shell will deploy the FLNG at its Prelude field off the northwest coast of Australia.
The three compressor trains on order will be used to recover gas from wells, for transmission and compression of gas during treatment, and for stabilization.
The power generation system consists of three 53,500 hp (40 MW) steam turbine power generation units. MCO, with cooperation from Mitsubishi Corp., received the orders for the compressors and power generation system from Technip France, part of the Technip Samsung consortium which Shell has tasked to engineer, procure, construct and install the Prelude FLNG facility.
The 1600 ft. (488 m) long, 240 ft. (74 m) wide FLNG facility will be the core of Shell's Prelude project. The FLNG, which will be the world's largest offshore floating facility, will be moored 125 miles (200 km) offshore Western Australia.
