Shell PLC is facing further industrial action in Australia after the country's CEPU union set out additional work bans at the Prelude FLNG facility.

The work bans, which will begin on July 1, come in addition to the 29 already in effect between June 10 and July 14. The additional action will affect activities relating to the mooring of tankers or vessels, helicopter transportation, work permits for contractors, and the restarting of steam turbine generators.

Around 200 offshore Prelude employees are included in the action, which is pushing for an increase in pay and a collective employee agreement.

"Shell recognizes the entitlement of all workers to exercise their rights, including the right to participate in industrial action. The safety and welcome of people on our sites remain our highest priority," Shell said in an email.

Shares at 1053 GMT were up 50 pence, or 1.6%, at 2,211 pence.

The CEPU is the Communications, Electrical, Electronic, Energy, Information, Postal, Plumbing and Allied Services Union of Australia.
