AUSTRALIAN Gas Infrastructure Group has been awarded a new Western Australian project by Woodside for the pipeline component of its Pluto-North West Shelf Interconnector.

A new 30-inch diameter pipeline is to run 3.2km, connecting the Woodside-operated Pluto LNG Plant to the NWS Project’s Karratha Gas Plant, and is the first component of the infrastructure needed to transport gas between the two facilities.

Under the contract entered into with Woodside, AGIG is to design, build and operate the new pipeline in addition to three facilities including:

  • A new inlet point and pig launcher adjacent to the Pluto domestic gas export compressor
  • A new meter station located near the KGP
  • A new pig receiver and outlet within the KGP.

AGIG chief executive Ben Wilson welcomed the Woodside contract as further cementing AGIG’s role as an owner and operator of critical infrastructure in Western Australia.


“AGIG already delivers for Western Australia through the Dampier Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline and our partnerships with many of the state’s major resource companies,” Mr Wilson said.

“We are proud to be partnering with Woodside on this important project to support the further development of gas infrastructure on the North West Shelf.”
