Woodside’s Scarborough LNG bags key approvals

Woodside’s Scarborough gas field development offshore Australia that will feed an expanded Pluto LNG export complex has received key primary approvals from the Commonwealth-Western Australian Joint Authority to support execution of the project.

The Scarborough joint venture has received an offer for the pipeline licence to construct and operate the Scarborough pipeline in Commonwealth waters, Woodside said today.

Approval has also been granted for the Scarborough Field Development Plan (FDP), enabling Woodside to commence petroleum recovery operations from Petroleum Production Licences WA-61-L and WA-62-L.

These milestones follow final investment decisions made in November 2021 to approve the US$12.0 billion (100%, $6.9 billion Woodside share) Scarborough and Pluto Train 2 developments. First LNG cargo is targeted for 2026.

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill said the pipeline licence and field development plan are among the final primary Commonwealth and Western Australian State Government approvals required to develop the Scarborough resource.

“The Scarborough reservoir contains only 0.1% carbon dioxide, and Scarborough gas processed through the efficient and expanded Pluto LNG facility supports the decarbonisation goals of our customers in Asia,” she said.

The Scarborough field is located approximately 375 km off the coast of Western Australia and is estimated to contain 11.1 trillion cubic feet (100%) of dry gas. Development of Scarborough will include the installation of a floating production unit (FPU) with eight wells drilled in the initial phase and thirteen wells drilled over the life of the Scarborough field. The gas will be transported to Pluto LNG through a new approximately 430 km
trunkline.

The key contractors are McDermott for the FPU; Subsea Integration Alliance for subsea hardware, risers, and flowlines; Valaris for drilling; Europipe for the trunkline pipe; and Saipem for the trunkline installation.

The Scarborough Joint Venture comprises Woodside Energy Scarborough Pty Ltd (73.5%) and BHP Petroleum (Australia) Pty Ltd (26.5%).
