PERTH, Australia – Woodside has temporarily shut-in production at its Pluto LNG plant in northwest Australia.

The company took this precautionary action after a submersible drilling rig under contract to another party drifted near the Pluto subsea flowlines.

Underwater inspections have confirmed the integrity of the flowlines. Production will restart when the rig has mobilized away from the Pluto infrastructure.
