In December 2018 Western Gas signed a memorandum of understanding 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.[4] In September 2019 Western Gas was reported to be seeking a partner for the project.[3]

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

In March 2021, Western Gas and APA Group signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to study the possibility of delivering gas from the Equus FLNG terminal.[2]
