Shell has fed gas from the Gallina LNG carrier to its Prelude FLNG vessel offshore Western Australia as part of the cooling process before startup, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

“This will cool down the tanks and process equipment and pipework with gas, and is an opportunity to test processes and systems before the subsea wells are opened at start up,” a Shell spokeswoman told the newswire.
