Shell technology chosen for FLNG project

Shell’s Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) technology has been selected as the Sunrise Joint Venture’s preferred option for developing the Greater Sunrise gas fields in the Timor Sea.

Subject to final approvals, Shell, a group of energy and petrochemicals companies, will operate the FLNG facility and manage the design and build phases of the project for the Sunrise Joint Venture participants, which comprise Shell (26.6 per cent), Woodside (33.4 per cent), ConocoPhillips (30 per cent) and Osaka Gas (10 per cent).

The Sunrise FLNG facility would produce around four million tonnes per annum of LNG, as well as condensate.

As part of the Sunrise Joint Venture, Shell will work with Woodside and the governments of Timor-Leste and Australia to advance the FLNG development.
