Pluto LNG forms part of our outstanding base business

Pluto LNG processes gas from the offshore Pluto and Xena gas fields in Western Australia. Gas is piped through a 180 km trunkline to a single onshore LNG-processing train. Pluto LNG is underpinned by 15-year sales agreements with Kansai Electric and Tokyo Gas, which each hold a 5% interest in the project.

Woodside is proposing a brownfield expansion of Pluto LNG through the construction of a second gas processing train. Pluto Train 2 would have a capacity of about 5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) (100% Project). 

Woodside is also progressing the Pluto–Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) Interconnector, intended to unlock incremental value for both Pluto LNG and the NWS Project. Transporting gas through the Interconnector would provide opportunities to take advantage of future excess capacity at KGP. It will also provide potential to accelerate future developments of other offshore Pluto gas reserves, as well as third-party resources. 

Woodside’s long-standing LNG development and operating experience is backed by growing capability in LNG shipping, with Pluto LNG managing an integrated shipping fleet of four LNG vessels.

One of Australia's pioneering, large-scale carbon offset projects

Pluto LNG has offset more than 850,000 tonnes of CO₂ since 2008. Through an innovative collaboration with CO2 Australia, over 26 million drought-resistant, native Australian Blue Mallee trees have been planted across more than 17,000 hectares.

Pluto LNG Expansion
The safe start-up of Pluto LNG in 2012 cemented our status as a major supplier of energy to the Asia-Pacific region. Now, we're proposing to add a second train to process gas from the offshore Scarborough field - part of our Burrup Hub vision.
