Woodside to decommission Griffin gas pipeline

Woodside Energy

Woodside Energy is preparing to decommission the Griffin gas export pipeline in pipeline licence WA-3-PL, around 58km north-west of Exmouth, Western Australia (WA).

The pipeline extends from the pipeline end manifold to the coastal waters boundary with water depths ranging from 127m to 52m.

Within the scope of the decommissioning include maintaining the pipeline until it is removed, removal of the pipeline and environmental monitoring activities.

According to the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA), the activities within the scope may occur at any time following acceptance.

Australia’s offshore energy regulator said that removal activities are expected to occur over two to four months, subject to weather, project schedule requirements, vessel availability, approvals or unforeseen circumstances.

Removal of the pipeline will be completed prior to 31 December 2024. Maintenance of the pipeline prior to removal is not expected, but may occur at any time.

Recently, Woodside Energy signed a decarbonisation pledge to reinforce the company’s commitment to reducing carbon and methane emissions.

The oil and gas company also confirmed it was in talks with rival Santos to form a potential alliance and merge into an $80 billion gas giant.
