Prelude Floating LNG Project

Prelude FLNG to be based in Browse Basin, Australia, uses revolutionary technology that will allow access to gas fields otherwise too costly or difficult to develop. Construction of the platform is near completion in Geoje with the next phase of the project set to see the Prelude towed to the gas field where further hookup and commissioning activities will be completed. Producing 2.6 million tonnes per annum of LNG, it is expected a team of between 120 to 140 people will work on board Prelude during its operations.

Our Capabilities


KBSS Engineering is an award-winning engineering contracting firm offering support solutions to several global mining, oil & gas and marine companies. We have the ability to mobilise a skilled workforce and equipment for large-scale projects. For example, we were commissioned for installation and alignment of conveyor idlers on Rio Tinto’s Cape Lambert Marine Works. KBSS’ exceptional performance here resulted in expanded scope of our services onsite and a continued working relationship with Rio Tinto for other projects. For Prelude FLNG, we have the resourcing capacity and internal capabilities to provide on-site machining and heat treatment services to meet project needs.
