Woodside has announced that it has discovered more gas near its Pluto infrastructure.

The Pyxis-1 exploration well has intersected approximately 18.5 m of net gas within the Jurassic sandstone target. The well reached a total depth of 3347 m.

Woodside Executive Vice President Global Exploration, Philip Loader, said: “Given its location, this successful exploration outcome offers future tie-back potential to Woodside’s existing Pluto infrastructure.”

Pyxis-1 is located in Production Licence WA-34-L, within Western Australia’s Dampier Sub-Basin and is located approximately 15 km north of the Pluto Gas Field infrastructure.

Woodside Burrup Pty. Ltd. is the operator and 90% equity owner of WA-34-L. Kansai Electric Power Australia Pty. Ltd. and Tokyo Gas Pluto Pty. Ltd. each hold 5% equity.
