Woodside Temporarily Shut-in Production at Pluto LNG Plant in WA

Woodside Petroleum Ltd. reported Monday that it has temporarily shut-in production at its Pluto LNG (liquefied natural gas) Plant in Western Australia.

This precautionary action was taken after a submersible drilling rig under contract to another party drifted near Pluto flowlines.

Underwater inspections have confirmed the integrity of the flowlines. Production will be restarted when the rig has been relocated away from Pluto infrastructure.

Further advice on the recommencement of production will be provided in due course.
