Reuters are reporting that Royal Dutch Shell has introduced gas to its 490 m long Prelude FLNG unit as part of the cooling process before start-up.

Gas was fed to the unit from LNG carrier Gallina. Thomson Reuters Eikon shiptracking data shows that the vessel left Prelude FLNG port on 7 June.

“This will cool down the tanks and process equipment and pipework with gas and is an opportunity to test processes and systems before the subsea wells are opened at start-up,” a spokeswoman said.
