In December 2018 Western Gas signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with McDermott and Baker Hughes to develop the Equus gas project offshore northwest Western Australia. The project includes a 2 mtpa floating LNG terminal, Equus FLNG, and the 160-km Equus Gas Pipeline.[3] The overall project costs are estimated to be between US$3 billion and US$4 billion.[2] In September 2019 Western Gas was reported to be seeking a partner for the project and appointed Goldman Sachs as an advisor.[4]

In April 2020, gasworld reported speculation that Western Gas was likely to delay the project due to LNG demand uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.[5]

There have been no updates in 2 years and the project is presumed shelved.
