First gas

Pilbara News - - Front Page -

The Wood­side-op­er­ated Pluto LNG project has cel­e­brated the suc­cess­ful com­mis­sion­ing of the Pluto pipe­line gas fa­cil­ity hav­ing sup­plied its first gas to the Dampier to Bun­bury Nat­u­ral Gas Pipe­line.

A cer­e­mony was held on site in De­cem­ber after the com­ple­tion of com­mis­sion­ing dur­ing which the fa­cil­ity pro­duced at near its ca­pac­ity of 25 ter­a­joules per day.

Wood­side vice-pres­i­dent for Pluto Mike Price said suc­cess­ful com­mis­sion­ing of the Pluto pipe­line gas fa­cil­ity was the first step to­wards Wood­side de­vel­op­ing a di­verse range of do­mes­tic gas sup­ply op­tions at the Pluto LNG site.

“Start-up of Pluto pipe­line gas, along with the planned com­mence­ment of Pluto do­mes­tic trucked LNG in 2019, demon­strates Wood­side’s com­mit­ment to de­liv­er­ing do­mes­tic gas from Pluto,” he said.

Pluto pipe­line gas will now form part of Wood­side’s do­mes­tic gas sup­ply port­fo­lio, adding to its foun­da­tion do­mes­tic gas fa­cil­ity at the North West Shelf.

Ad­di­tional do­mes­tic gas sup­ply from Pluto is sched­uled to start up early this year with the com­mis­sion­ing of the Pluto LNG truck­ing fa­cil­ity.

Do­mes­tic gas in­fra­struc­ture on the Pluto site will also be ex­panded as part of the pro­posed Pluto Train 2 project, for which a fi­nal in­vest­ment de­ci­sion is tar­geted in 2020.
