How local content drives performance

The Prelude FLNG facility started out in a shipyard in Geoje, South Korea and its construction took place across the globe. The facility is now securely on station, 475km North-North East of Broome in Western Australia and once operating will be an Australian asset within Shell’s LNG portfolio.

To make Shell’s first deployment of FLNG possible, partnerships have been critical both from a technical and commercial perspective as well as more broadly to improve local content and social outcomes.

This presentation will explore these partnerships in more detail ranging from the grass roots organisations that Shell Australia supports through its social investment programs, through to partnerships with universities, industry collaborations, training institutes and local businesses
