Woodside Petroleum Ltd (WOPEF), in a joint venture with Tokyo Gas Co. Ltd (TKGSF) and Kansai Electric Power Co. Inc. (KAEPY), is planning to undertake the expansion of Pluto LNG project in Western Australia, Australia.
The project involves the construction of two LNG trains comprising a second LNG processing train (Train 2) with a production capacity of approximately 4.3 million metric tons per annum (MMTPA). However, the exact production capacity of the third LNG processing train (Train 3) is yet not disclosed.
The project includes the construction of storage tanks and condensate tanks, the installation of pressure vessels, electrical and mechanical equipment, and safety systems, and the laying of 180km pipeline from Pluto field to Karratha.
In November 2009, WOPEF has awarded dual contracts for Pluto Train 2 and Train 3 front-end engineering design (FEED) to a joint venture (JV) of Foster Wheeler (now called as Amec Foster Wheeler), WorleyParsons, and KBR. WOPEF chose to award dual FEED contracts to provide the necessary due diligence for the engineering, procurement and construction management phase of Pluto Train 2 and Train 3 in the fastest time frame.
In April 2013, WOPEF had placed the project on hold, as it could not secure additional gas resources required for the expansion project.
The project remained on hold until early 2016. However, during March 2016, WOPEF had started the discussions with potential contractors about the engineering, procurement and construction management contract for a second LNG train. However, the contract is yet not finalized.
Study activities for the expansion of the project are underway.
The project involves the construction of two LNG trains near northwest of Karratha, Western Australia, Australia.
The US$15,000 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of a 4.3MMTPA capacity train II
2. Construction of storage tanks
3. Construction of condensate tanks
4. Installation of pressure vessels
5. Installation of electrical and mechanical equipment
