DOF Subsea, a subsidiary of Norway's DOF ASA, reported Friday that Shell Australia has awarded the firm a 5-year inspection, maintenance and repair (IRM) contract with 2 options for 2-years extensions to provide fulltime underwater services and multi-purpose supply vessel (MPSV) to the Prelude FLNG (floating liquefied natural gas) facility that will be deployed offshore Western Australia.

The workscope requires DOF Subsea to provide project management, engineering and integrated services for IMR programs as well as the dedicated vessel and options for other vessels. Prelude FLNG, the largest floating facility ever built, will produce, liquefy, store and transfer LNG at sea.
 
"This is a very important contract award for DOF Subsea, and the award further strengthens DOF Subsea's position in the global subsea IMR market. We look forward to working with Shell Australia on the world leading Prelude FLNG facility," CEO Mons Aase said in the press release.
