Shell, Prelude Floating LNG Project

A laboratory was engineered and equipped on the world’s largest vessel (and world’s largest offshore facility) for liquefying and processing of natural gas. Being on a ship, special requirements were met to cope with conditions at sea. 

The vessel was designed to take in the equivalent of 110,000 barrels of oil per day in natural gas and cool it into liquefied natural gas. The laboratory set up by M&I-Labtech takes care of all testing for both process control and custody transfer.
