In January of 2019, Woodside Petroleum suspended its proposed OceanWay LNG import terminal off the Californian coast near Los Angeles. The announcement came just weeks after Woodside said it would continue the project at reduced size, citing current market conditions. The decision was made in the face of rising US domestic gas production and lower gas prices. In December 2008 Woodside reduced the number of regasification tankers for the project from two to one citing community and regulatory concerns as well as a perceived fall in customer demand. The plan involved bringing LNG from Woodside's Australian gas projects, converting the LNG back to natural gas in regasification tankers and unloading the gas through underwater buoys 45 km off Los Angeles. The gas was to be piped into the southern Californian network via a hub at Los Angeles International Airport.
There have been no development updates since 2009 and it is presumed to be cancelled.
