Woodside gets environmental nod for Scarborough LNG

Woodside said today that it has been granted environmental approval for the nearshore component of the proposed Scarborough development offshore Western Australia. This marks another crucial step for the project ahead of a planned final investment decision later this year.

The approval authorises the installation of a 32-kilometre section of the Scarborough trunkline within State waters, together with associated activities required to build the trunkline.

“This is an important regulatory milestone as we now have both Commonwealth and State primary environmental approvals in place to support a final investment decision for the Scarborough development,” said Woodside acting chief executive Meg O’Neill.

“Scarborough gas contains negligible reservoir carbon dioxide. Combined with the adoption of best available proven technology in design at Pluto Train 2, these developments will be amongst the lowest-carbon LNG sources globally for Woodside’s North Asian customers,” claimed O’Neill.

Woodside puts Scarborough and Pluto LNG stakes up for sale

Extraction and processing of the Scarborough field gas in Commonwealth waters was assessed separately under the Scarborough Offshore Project Proposal and was accepted by the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority in March 2020.

Woodside is proposing to develop the Scarborough gas resource through new offshore facilities connected by a 430 km pipeline to a proposed expansion of the existing Pluto liquefied natural gas (LNG) onshore facility.

Expansion includes modifications to the existing Pluto Train 1, construction of a second gas processing train (Pluto Train 2) and additional domestic gas infrastructure.

Woodside is targeting a final investment decision (FID) for Scarborough and Pluto Train 2 in the second half of 2021.
