Pluto LNG Storage Tanks

The Pluto LNG Project is a liquefaction facility with a forecast production of 4.3 million tonnes per annum. Located on the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia, the site lies approximately 20 kilometres northwest of Karratha.


Having prior involvement with the Pluto LNG Project dating back to 2001 through Woodside Energy, BGC Contracting was awarded civil and concrete works associated with the construction of LNG tanks through the energy infrastructure group, CB&I.

CB&I’s initial scope of work included the engineering, procurement, construction and pre-commissioning of two 120,000 cubic meter full containment LNG storage tanks, three condensate tanks and associated civil, piping, electrical and instrumentation work.

Working with CB&I, BGC’s scope on the Pluto LNG Tank Project involved:

  • Site works
  • Concrete shell and roof construction for 5 storage tanks
  • 2 Number LNG storage tanks
  • 3 Number condensate storage tanks.

The 2 LNG Storage tanks were 72m diameter / 47m high Reinforced, and included construction of all concrete to bases, walls and roofs. (23,000m³ of concrete).

The condensate tanks involved earthwork foundations for 2x 66m diameter tanks, and 1 x 27.5m diameter tank. (16,000m³ of earthworks).
