Shell Australia chairman Tony Nunan says the energy giant is still open to processing LNG from the Scarborough gas field via the North West Shelf venture’s Karratha gas plant. Shell one of six partners in the NW Shelf project, along with Woodside Petroleum. The latter’s acting CEO Meg O’Neill says the Karratha plant is not suitable for processing ‘dry’ gas from Scarborough. Woodside instead plans to process the gas at a new processing train at its Pluto LNG plant near Karratha. Some analysts believe that the NW Shelf project’s declining output may force several of its five LNG trains to close down in coming years.
