Woodside has announced that it has temporarily shut-in production at its Pluto LNG Plant.
The 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 LNG infrastructure.
Woodside expects to advise on the recommencement of production in due course.
