Potential applications include remote power generation and heavy transport fuel. Woodside expects to start the facility up in the second half of 2018.

Updating on the Pluto LNG expansion, the company said that the feasibility studies on small-scale and mid-scale (0.7 to 1.5 mtpa) LNG trains were concluded, broadening the options for capacity enhancement at Pluto LNG.

Studies have commenced on a pipeline connecting Pluto LNG and the NWS project’s Karratha gas plant, with the potential to accelerate Pluto area gas reserves. leverage existing Pluto offshore capacity and utilize emerging NWS LNG ullage, Woodside said.

Preparations commenced for the installation of a compressor capable of delivering 10-25 TJ/day of gas into the Dampier to Bunbury natural gas pipeline. Following all required approvals, Pluto gas is expected to be supplied to WA from the second half of 2018.
