Prelude FLNG (Image courtesy of Shell)Aberdeen-based mechanical engineering group EnerMech has won a five-year deal for Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) project offshore Western Australia.EnerMech did not reveal the value of the deal under which it will supply hose and hose fittings as well as services for the giant FLNG facility.The contract will be administered from EnerMech’s Henderson base in Perth while engineering and service support will be provided from regional facilities across Australia, including Darwin in the Northern Territory, according to a statement by EnerMech.To remind, EnerMech has earlier this year secured a pre-commissioning subcontract by Technip Oceania, a TechnipFMC company, for the Prelude FLNG project.The Prelude facility arrived at its location, the Prelude field, 475km North East of Broome from South Korea late July.Prelude FLNG was secured with sixteen mooring lines in August. The facility is currently undergoing hook-up and commissioning phase which is expected to take between 9-12 months.Once fully commissioned, the FLNG facility is expected to be able to produce 3.6 million tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG, 1.3 mtpa of condensate and 0.4 mtpa of LPG.The Prelude project is operated by Shell in a joint venture with Inpex (17.5 percent), Kogas (10 percent) and OPIC (5 percent).

The break in football caused by the coronavirus crisis put Ighalo’s future in serious doubt as it meant the Nigerian’s contract came to an end with nine Premier League matches remaining of the season.But the Red Devils ended the uncertainty last week as Ighalo, a lifelong fan of the club, put pen to paper on a six-month extension.“I like him, I like him a lot,” former United and England forward Owen said on Premier League Productions.“I know people turn their nose up at him because he’s come from Chinese football or because he’s on loan, he’s not a sexy £60 million player or whatever.“But I tell you what, I like him. “He’s maybe not the full-time No.9 for Manchester United permanently but when you’ve got [Anthony] Martial, when you’ve got Ighalo, when you’ve got [Marcus] Rashford, all of a sudden you’ve got a bit of pace, a bit of pace, a bit of guile.”Asked whether Ighalo could be United’s answer to Divock Origi, Owen replied: “Yeah, but even more of a role I’d say, Ighalo.“I think he’s another level up, to be honest.“I think he would get more game-time for Manchester United than Origi would at Liverpool in the future.“I like him and I think it’s a good move to extend his contract.” Tags: Manchester UnitedMichael OwenOdion Ighalo
Britton, 32, has not played so far this season after suffering a knee injury during the summer. However, the Swans announced on their official website that he took part in training on Tuesday and will continue with partial team training for the rest of this week before making a full return during the forthcoming international break. Midfielder Leon Britton is on course to be in the selection mix for Swansea’s Barclays Premier League clash against Manchester City later this month. If everything goes according to plan, Britton could then be available for Swansea’s trip to The Etihad on November 22. Swansea have also said that defenders Jordi Amat and Dwight Tiendalli are back in full training following knee and groin injuries, respectively. Amat has not featured since being hurt during a 4-2 league defeat at Chelsea in September, while Tiendalli’s last appearance came against Capital One Cup opponents Rotherham the previous month.
