Woodside wraps up stake sale in second Pluto LNG train to GIP

Australian LNG player Woodside said it has completed the previously announced sale of a 49 percent non-operating stake in the second Pluto LNG train to US-based Global Infrastructure Partners.

Woodside and GIP signed the deal in November last year.

After that, Woodside took a final investment decision on the Scarborough and Pluto LNG Train 2 developments worth about $12 billion.

The approval also includes new domestic gas facilities and modifications to the first Pluto 4.9 mtpa train on Western Australia’s Burrup Peninsula.

Pluto Train 2 will process gas from the Scarborough offshore gas resource and have a capacity of about 5 mtpa.

Woodside expects the capital expenditure for the development of Pluto Train 2 to reach about $5.6 billion.

The joint venture arrangements for the second train require GIP to fund its 49 percent share of capital expenditure and an additional amount of construction capital expenditure of about $822 million, Woodside said on Tuesday.

It expects the first LNG cargo from the new Pluto train to leave the plant in 2026.

The Pluto JV comprises Woodside Burrup with an operating 90 percent stake. Kansai Electric Power Australia and Tokyo Gas Pluto have each a 5 percent share.

As per the Pluto Train 2 JV, Woodside Burrup Train 2 holds a 51 percent operating stake and GIP owns the rest.
