EnerMech lands Prelude work

EnerMech has been awarded a five-year contract for hose and hose fittings supply and services for Shell’s Prelude FLNG Facility in Western Australia.

The Prelude FLNG contract will be administered from EnerMech’s Henderson base in Perth while engineering and service support will be provided from regional facilities across Australia, including Darwin in the Northern Territory.

“We are pleased to announce the appointment of EnerMech as the Hose Integrity Management and Supply contractor on the prestigious Prelude FLNG Facility,” said EnerMech’s Regional Director Allan Hart.

“This latest award strengthens EnerMech’s reputation as a leading maintenance service provider with a willingness to adapt to the changing oil and gas environment.”

The Prelude FLNG facility recently arrived at its location 475 km northeast of Broome where the hook-up and commissioning phase of the project is underway.

Shell is developing the Prelude, Concerto and Crux gas fields, located in permits WA-44L and AC/L9 in Western Australia’s offshore Browse Basin.

Prelude will be located in the Browse Basin, approximately 475 km north-northeast of Broome and over 200 km from the nearest point on the coast of the remote Kimberley region, in Western Australia.

Joint venture participants in the project include Shell (operator, 67.5 per cent), INPEX (17.5 per cent), KOGAS (10 per cent) and OPIC (5 per cent).
