Monadelphous Clinches $144M Contract for Shell's Prelude FLNG Project

Engineering company Monadelphous Group Limited (Monadelphous) disclosed Monday it has been awarded a major long term maintenance and modifications services contract associated with Shell Australia’s Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) project offshore Western Australia.

The contract, with an estimated value of more than $143.9 million (AUD 200 million) is located in the Browse Basin, approximately 295 miles (475 kilometers) north-northeast of Broome, in Western Australia.

Monadelphous will provide maintenance, brownfield modifications and turnaround services to the LNG process plant, support utilities, hull and non-process infrastructure including accommodation and control rooms. The contract also includes the delivery of fabrication services from Darwin in support of offshore operations.

The contract, which is for an initial period of seven years with a further two 2-year extension options, is expected to create business opportunities and employment for Local and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Prelude will be the largest floating offshore facility ever constructed, and revolutionize the way offshore natural gas resources are developed. There are a number of FLNG facilities being considered for development around the world.

Commenting on the new contract, Monadelphous Managing Director Rob Velletri said, “We are especially pleased to be selected by Shell Australia as a major service provider for the Prelude FLNG facility. Our long-term goal is to become the partner of choice in the provision of FLNG services.”

“This contract is of significant strategic importance to Monadelphous. Our successful history of delivering maintenance services to LNG facilities around Australia demonstrates our leadership in oil and gas maintenance and our capability to deliver a diverse range of operations and maintenance services for both onshore and offshore facilities” he said.
