On 1 January 2022, Woodside issued Full Notice to Proceed (FNTP) to Bechtel for the Pluto Train 2 Project Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) scope of work.
FNTP enables Bechtel to commence and complete the full engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning scope to support delivery of the Pluto Train 2 Project, building on the early works that are being delivered currently, including construction of the temporary Construction Accommodation Village to accommodate the non-local construction workforce at the Gap Ridge Village site in Karratha.
The EPC scope of work for Bechtel includes the construction and commissioning of the second LNG train, domestic gas facilities as well as common utilities, and general facilities at the Pluto LNG Park.
Woodside and Bechtel are working to maximise opportunities for local, regional and WA businesses and people across the supply chain and through employment, including Indigenous participation opportunities. The project teamed up with the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation (MAC) Rangers to support pest and vector management and fauna handling activities at the site.
