Sodexo to provide living services for Prelude FLNG

Shell Australia has awarded Sodexo a contract for offshore facilities management services for the Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) Project.

The agreement is to deliver services seamlessly from South Korea to the Browse Basin.

Prelude FLNG, the largest floating facility ever constructed, allows for the production, liquefaction, storage and transfer of LNG, LPG and condensate at sea, the first deployment of this technology by Shell Australia. Upon arrival in Australian waters, Prelude will moor 475 km north-northeast of Broome.

The contract also marks Shell Australia’s first outsourced solution to feature positive gender diversity targets, Sodexo said in a statement, recognising the value each organisation places on workplace diversity.

Sodexo will oversee the accommodation management, waste management, house-keeping and laundry services for the 600,000 tonne facility. Sodexo will also provide commissioning support in Geoje, South Korea, ensuring the living quarters are comfortable and to Australian safety standards.

Sodexo will also offer guidance from nutritionists and wellness experts, the provision of dietician-approved meal options and relevant nutritional advice.

The company will also be providing technical services and administration support on-board. Sodexo will take care of Helideck administration and corrective and preventative maintenance in the galley, dining, accommodation and recreation areas.
