The C-Worker can then act as a communications hub downloading high-resolution data from the ecoSUB for stor- age or transmission before collecting the AUVs. Prelude FLNG Arrives in Australia Shell Australia's Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility arrived in waters 475 km from Broome in western Australia. The 488-m-long floating facility is the first deployment of Shell's FLNG technology for extracting and liquefying gas at sea before export. Australian engineering company Monadelphous is con- tracted for maintenance and modification services, and Shell partnered with South Metropolitan TAFE in western Australia to develop training for technicians in helicopter landing and refueling skills, rigging, scaffolding and first aid.
