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. The overall project costs are estimated to be between US$3 billion and US$4 billion. In September 2019 Western Gas was reported to be seeking a partner for the project and appointed Goldman Sachs as an advisor.
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.
