Australian institute to train Shell FLNG workers
Challenger will deliver the training, assessment and assurance of process and maintenance technicians so they will be ready to work on the commissioning and start-up of the Prelude facility

Australian-based Challenger Institute of Technology and Shell Australia have committed to a multi-year partnership to develop training programmes for the technicians who will operate and maintain the energy giant’s Prelude Floating LNG facility, off Australia.

 

Challenger will deliver the training, assessment and assurance of process and maintenance technicians so they will be ready to work on the commissioning and start-up of the Prelude facility.

 

Challenger and Shell will jointly develop the training programmes, which will be rolled out from 2014 as Shell completes the construction and commissioning of the Prelude FLNG facility, to be stationed in the East Browse Basin off Kimberley coast in Western Australia.

 

Challenger’s Australian Centre for Energy and Process Training (ACEPT) at the Australian Marine Complex will be the home base for the delivery of the programmes.
