Second LNG cargo from Prelude – still trouble at mill?

Second LNG cargo from Prelude

Overnight intelligence information about Shell Prelude sent to retired Shell International HSE consultant, Bill Campbell

The second LNG off take looks like being imminent. It’s the Methane Julia Louise, the red shape under the yellow tracking trial. The blue dot below with a hello anchor sign is the Prelude The other blue dots are either standby boat, supply boat or tug. It looks as though there is still “trouble at mill” as its almost 24 days since the first cargo which would suggest around running at 25% capacity. Name plate capacity is 3.6 million tons of LNG.  LNG SG is circa 0.43 so around 8 million cubic meters of LNG or 23,000 per day.  LNG off take tanker about 150,000 cubic meters so it should have a LNG off take tanker about every 4 days when running at full name plate capacity.
