Shell’s Prelude FLNG has exported its second cargo since it was restarted this month, quashing concerns about fresh operational problems.

The 155,671-cbm Oceanic Breeze (built 2018) departed the floating LNG production unit off north-western Australia with a cargo on Monday, bound for Japan, where it is due to arrive on 1 February.

There had been concerns that Prelude had suffered new operational problems after two ships, the 174,000-cbm GasLog Glasgow (built 2016) and the 147,608-cbm Symphonic Breeze (built 2007), which had been signalling arrival at the floater, were diverted elsewhere.
