Oxair Gas Systems has announced that it has received the service contract to maintain the nitrogen generator plant (built by Air Products) on board Shell’s Prelude floating LNG (FLNG) facility.
The FLNG facility is designed to withstand a category five cyclone and will enable the safe, reliable and continuous production of LNG for the next 25 years.
Oxair’s Managing Director, David Cheeseman, said: “Oxair is delighted to have been chosen to manage the maintenance of the nitrogen generator plant on board Prelude. The enormous scale of the project underlines the confidence which Shell places in our company. Our firm has a long affiliation with Air Products and has been building and selling nitrogen systems worldwide using Air Products’ technology for over 27 years. We are thrilled to work as a key supplier to this world-class project.”
Oxair is also currently involved in the GOAL ZERO partnership Forum with Shell and other partners, an initiative which seeks to make the interaction between all contractors as transparent as possible with regard to key safety practices.
