The Equus Gas Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline in Australia.

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. In September 2019 Western Gas was reported to be seeking a partner for the project. 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.
