Swift Networks has won a contract to provide its services to Shell at the energy giant’s Prelude LNG project in the state’s north-west for an undisclosed sum.

Perth-based Swift will provide entertainment, connectivity, maintenance and support at Prelude for an initial five-year term under the contract

“We are excited to support Shell on Prelude, which is one of the world’s most significant LNG projects,” Swift chief executive Xavier Kris said.

Shell faced a significant technical challenge in keeping its offshore workers entertained, informed and connected.

“We are pleased that the recognition of Swift’s technological capabilities has led Shell to invite us to provide a comprehensive telecommunication and digital entertainment solution to the Prelude project.”

Swift will design, construct and supply a communications system and associated infrastructure to provide entertainment services to the Prelude floating facility.

Swift shares were 2.2 per cent higher to 22.5 cents each at midday.
