The Scarborough Energy Project was 55% complete at the end of the fourth quarter, according to a market update from Woodside, and approximately 57km out of 433km of pipelay has been finished.
Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill said it has ‘strong momentum’ on the project following receipt of regulatory approvals in December for key offshore work scopes. The project, targeting 8Mtpa, is located 375km off the Pilbara coast of Western Australia.
The Scarborough gas field will be developed through new offshore facilities connected by pipeline to a second LNG train (Pluto Train 2) at the existing Pluto LNG onshore facility.
She said, “We’ve already completed the seismic survey, nearshore pipelay installation is almost complete and we’ve commenced pipelay work in Commonwealth waters. Earlier this month, we spud the first production well in our drilling program. Fabrication of six of the 51 modules for Pluto Train 2 has been completed and work on another 38 is underway. We remain on track for targeted first LNG cargo in 2026.”
