Woodside expects to receive first Pluto Train 2 module in Q1 2024

Australian LNG producer Woodside expects to receive the first module from Indonesia at the Pluto Train 2 project site in Western Australia in the first quarter of 2024.

In November 2021, Woodside took a final investment decision on the Scarborough and Pluto LNG Train 2 developments worth about $12 billion and expects to ship the first cargo in 2026.

The projects also include new domestic gas facilities and modifications to the first train.

Woodside’s Pluto LNG terminal currently has one train with a capacity of 4.9 mtpa and Woodside and US engineer Bechtel started building the second Pluto train last year.

Pluto Train 2 will get gas from the Scarborough gas field, located about 375 km off the coast of Western Australia, through a new trunkline long about 430 km.

Woodside’s CEO Meg O’Neill recently visited the yard in Batam, Indonesia, where Bechtel is building in total 51 modules for the second Pluto LNG train, according to a social media post published on Tuesday.

Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine, now Seatrium, joined forces with Bechtel in 2021 to build these modules.

“As of last week, the 3000+ staff there had started assembling 42 of the 51 modules we’ll need,” O’Neill said in the LinkedIn post.

“The first module is expected to arrive at our project site in Dampier, Western Australia in the first quarter of next year,” she said.

Bechtel previously said it expects to complete all of the modules, each weighing up to about 4,500 tonnes, in 2024.
