Jumbo Delivers Piles for Prelude FLNG

Jumbo has transported 16 piles for the Shell’s floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) Prelude field development in North West Australia.

The Technip-Samsung consortium was contracted for the design, construction and installation of the FLNG facility.

The FLNG will be moored with a total of sixteen anchor lines. The anchors in this system are steel, 5½ meter diameter piles, each 62 meter long and weighing over 650 tons each and produced in the Aviles area, Spain.

Jumbo was hired by Technip to transport these sixteen piles from Aviles to Batam in Indonesia. Once there, the piles are transferred by Jumbo to cargo barges, which will be taken to the installation vessel for installation.

Jumbo Jubilee and Fairpartner were scheduled to take these loads to their destination. On the October 2, the first piles were loaded by the Jumbo Jubilee crew and on the November 26, the project was completed as the Fairpartner crew offloaded the last of the sixteen piles onto the cargo barge.
