Pluto LNG Train 2
The project comprises a proposed expansion of the Woodside-operated Pluto LNG facility through construction of a second LNG train. Expanded capacity allows for the potential processing of third-party gas resources through the Pluto LNG facilities, including the proposed Scarborough Development.
Woodside has selected Bechtel as its preferred contractor, initially to undertake FEED and with an option to construct the project subject to FID. Woodside intends to enter into negotiations to finalise contract arrangements for the work, based upon Bechtel’s proposal which reflects a proven design that it has previously constructed in Australia.
As the successful EPC contractor, Bechtel would assume responsibilities as the procurement entity for all itemised packages that result as sub-contracts.
Woodside’s own procurement activities will be limited to sourcing materials or services occasionally required to supplement the services provided by the EPC contractor.
Woodside’s project milestones are aligned with the proposed upstream Scarborough Development, targeting a final investment decision in 2021.
Project at a glance
The North West Shelf (NWS) subsea tieback (SSTB) program is focused on using existing infrastructure to develop reserves from existing and undeveloped NWS Project fields.
This is the home page for Woodside covering all projects.
Woodside is proposing to develop the
Scarborough gas resource through new
offshore facilities connected through an
approximately 430 km pipeline to a proposed
brownfield expansion of the existing Pluto
LNG onshore facility (Pluto Train 2 Project).
The proposed offshore development, referred
to as the Scarborough Project, is to initially
develop the Scarborough gas field with up to
seven subsea, high-rate gas wells, tied back to
a semi-submersible floating production unit
(FPU) moored in 900 metres of water close to
the Scarborough field.
The Scarborough Project is an integral part of
Woodside’s Burrup Hub vision for a regional
gas hub which will secure economic growth
and local employment opportunities for
Western Australia for decades to come.
The Julimar-Brunello fields are located on the North West Shelf, approximately 180 km west-north-west off Dampier, Western Australia.
Woodside is the operator of the Julimar-Brunello fields, with a 65% interest (KUFPEC have 35% interest). These fields supply 20% of Wheatstone LNG’s foundation capacity of natural gas.
