The Woodside-operated North West Shelf (NWS) Project’s facilities constitute Australia’s largest oil and gas development. Accounting for more than one third of Australia’s oil and gas production, the NWS Project is a joint venture between six major international companies. It is one of the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers, supplying oil and gas to Australian and international markets from huge offshore gas, oil and condensate fields in the Carnarvon Basin off the north-west coast of Australia. The North West Shelf Project facilities include the Karratha Gas Plant, and offshore production facilities including the North Rankin Complex, Goodwyn A and Angel platforms.
The Woodside-operated Pluto LNG Plant is located 190km north-west of Karratha, in Western Australia, in the Northern Carnarvon Basin. The total area of the Pluto leases for the onshore facility is about 200 hectares, of which the plant and associated infrastructure cover about 80 hectares. Onshore infrastructure comprises a single LNG processing train. The Pluto A platform is located 180 kilometres north-west of Karratha in 85 metres of water. Gas is piped through a trunkline to the onshore facility. Pluto LNG is a joint venture between Woodside (Operator and (90%), Kansai Electric (5%) and Tokyo Gas (5%).
