Prelude, the largest floating LNG platform in the world (for now) is finally on the move. It has set sail from Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea and is en route to its first destination at the Browse Basin, in about 250m water depth, off the coast of Australia. Arrival at the site is expected to be the end of July 2017. First production will be sometime in 2018.
AIS provided the operations management software for this highly technical floating facility.
