AGIG’s successful Pluto facility commissioning opens up more natural gas sources for W.A. consumers

The Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) is pleased to announce the successful commissioning of the Pluto Inlet Station – the new facility connecting the Pluto LNG Project to the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP).

The successful commissioning allows additional gas supply to reach Western Australian consumers.

Woodside – which operates the Pluto LNG plant near Karratha in WA – engaged AGIG’s development group to undertake a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study to convert an existing outlet meter station to an inlet facility, along with the required compression.

The completed inlet facility now has the capacity to supply up to 25 terajoules per day via the DBNGP to WA consumers of natural gas.

AGIG’s Chief Customer Officer, Andrew Staniford, said AGIG was pleased to play a key role in this latest project achievement for Woodside, expanding increased capacity to supply natural gas to consumers.

“Delivering the successful commissioning of the Pluto facility for Woodside demonstrates continued project success for AGIG and a greater diversification of gas sources available to the WA market,” Mr Staniford said.
