The Western Australian government has approved Woodside Petroleum’s proposed expansion of the Pluto LNG project, subject to a number of conditions. Woodside will be required to reduce carbon emissions at the LNG plant by 30 per cent by 2030, while the project must become carbon-neutral by 2050. The expanded plant will process gas from the Scarborough gas field; Woodside’s interim CEO Meg O’Neill contend that the company can both develop Scarborough and meet its carbon reduction targets, given that the gas field contains almost no carbon dioxide.
