Woodside Petroleum has confirmed it will build a compressor to feed the Dampier to Bunbury Pipeline.
The plan to pipe gas south as part of the company’s Pluto LNG Project, was outlined in Woodside’s fourth-quarter production report.
According to the report, “Preparations commenced for the installation of a compressor capable of delivering 10-25 TJ/day of gas into the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline.
“Following all required approvals, Pluto gas is expected to be supplied to customers in Western Australia from H2 2018.”
The Pluto LNG joint venture has also approved the development of a LNG truck-loading facility.
The facility will extend existing infrastructure from the onshore processing facility to provide LNG for distribution within Western Australia.
Potential applications include remote power generation and heavy transport fuel.
Trucks with LNG from the facility will also start delivery in 2018.
