Workers at a floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) production facility in Australia belonging to the oil and gas group Shell are planning to continue on strike. This was reported by a union. The strike could disrupt maintenance activities, the union said.


Employees at the LNG project Prelude have been on strike for a week now in a call for better working conditions. This promotion lasts until June 30 and can now last even longer. According to Shell, the production of Prelude will not be affected by the strike. Prelude can produce 3.6 million tons of LNG per year.

The production vessel is located off the northwestern coast of Australia. Earlier, there was a fire on the platform, which caused production to stop for a while. Since the platform was launched in 2019, it has also continued to struggle with technical problems.

Shell said in a statement that the company recognizes the rights of all employees, including the right to participate in strikes.
