LNG TO REPLACE DIESEL FOR POWER GENERATION AT PILGANGOORA LITHIUM EXTRACTION SITE

December 22, 2023

Woodside has signed a Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA) with Pilgangoora Operations, a 100%-owned subsidiary of Pilbara Minerals, for the supply of Domestic LNG from the Pluto Truck Loading Facility. Supply under the SPA will commence in the fourth quarter of 2024 for a period of five years. The average volume to be supplied is 3.4 terajoules/day. The LNG is to be used at Pilbara Minerals’ Pilgangoora lithium operation, located 300 kilometres east of Karratha, where it will replace diesel for power generation. The Pilgangoora operation is one of the world’s largest hard rock lithium deposits.
The LNG will be supplied on an ex-works basis from the Pluto Truck Loading Facility at Woodside’s Pluto LNG Facility on the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia.
