A workforce of more than 5,000 are helping to build the world’s largest floating offshore facility, Prelude FLNG, at South Korea’s Geoje shipyard  for the energy multinational  Shell.
The facility will be 488 metres long, 74 metres wide and use 260,000 tonnes of steel  when it is delivered to Browse Basin off the north-west Australian coast where it will turn gas into liquefied natural gas (LNG) before transferring it to ships to take it to market.
Lloyd’s Register has been actively involved with the project, ensuring it will operate safely and sustainably and applying our FLNG expertise via classification, equipment certification and validation against performance standards.
