Woodside: first Pluto Train 2 modules installed

Australian LNG producer Woodside has received the first three modules from Indonesia at the Pluto Train 2 project site in Western Australia.

In November 2021, Woodside took a final investment decision on the Scarborough and Pluto LNG Train 2 developments worth about $12 billion.

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 with a capacity of 5 mtpa in 2022.

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 said in September 2023 it expects to receive the first Pluto 2 modules in the first quarter of this year.

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

51 modules

Woodside said in an update on Wednesday that the arrival of first three Pluto Train 2 modules in Karratha, Western Australia, marks a “significant milestone” for the Scarborough energy project.

The modules weigh a combined total of more than 4,000 metric tonnes.

Woodisde said the modules are three of a total of 51 that will be shipped to site from the module yard to form Pluto Train 2.

More than 55 percent complete

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill said the delivery of the first Pluto Train 2 module was a “key milestone” towards the delivery of the Scarborough energy project.

“With the Scarborough energy project sitting at more than 55 percent complete, we are making significant progress across all scopes of work and look forward to receiving the remaining modules on site throughout 2024,” she said.

Woodside said that the Scarborough energy project is targeting first LNG cargo in 2026.
