The project comprises a proposed expansion of the Woodside-operated Pluto LNG facility through construction of a second LNG train. Expanded capacity allows for the potential processing of third-party gas resources through the Pluto LNG facilities, including the proposed Scarborough Development.
Woodside has selected Bechtel as its preferred contractor, initially to undertake FEED and with an option to construct the project subject to FID. Woodside intends to enter into negotiations to finalise contract arrangements for the work, based upon Bechtel’s proposal which reflects a proven design that it has previously constructed in Australia.
As the successful EPC contractor, Bechtel would assume responsibilities as the procurement entity for all itemised packages that result as sub-contracts.
Woodside’s own procurement activities will be limited to sourcing materials or services occasionally required to supplement the services provided by the EPC contractor.
Woodside’s project milestones are aligned with the proposed upstream Scarborough Development, targeting a final investment decision in 2021.
