Project at a glance
Woodside will develop the Scarborough gas resource through new offshore facilities connected by an approximately 430 km pipeline to a brownfield expansion of the existing Pluto LNG onshore facility (Pluto Train 2).
The proposal is to initially develop the gas field with eight subsea, high-rate gas wells, and thirteen wells drilled over the life of the Scarborough field, with all wells tied back to a semi-submersible floating production unit (FPU) moored in 950 m of water close to the Scarborough field.
The development of Scarborough will provide a boost to Western Australia, growing jobs and bringing work through the supply chain. Woodside is working closely with its key contractors to maximise opportunities for local, regional and WA businesses across the supply chain for Scarborough.
Woodside has engaged with a range of specialist contractors in the offshore, subsea and pipeline sectors to deliver the Scarborough Project, including Subsea Integrated Alliance for the engineering, manufacture, supply and installation of the subsea hardware, umbilicals, risers and flowlines scope, McDermott for the engineering, procurement, construction and delivery of the FPU, Saipem for the coating and installation of the export pipeline and Boskalis for the seabed intervention and shore crossing scope.
In Q4 2021, Woodside announced a final investment decision for the Scarborough Project. Woodside has issued Full Notice to Proceed to key Scarborough contractors.

Woodside is pursuing an opportunity to process up to 3 Mtpa of Scarborough gas via the existing Pluto Train 1. This project is known as the Pluto Train 1 Scarborough Modifications Project and involves modifying the existing Pluto Train 1 facility to enable it to process Scarborough gas.
Woodside has selected Bechtel (Western Australia) Pty Ltd and Kellogg Brown and Root Ltd to perform Front End Engineering Design (FEED) services through 2022 under a dual FEED arrangement. Subject to applicable regulatory and joint venture approvals, the execute phase of the Project is expected to commence in 2023.
Woodside will work with its FEED contractors to maximise opportunities for local, regional and Western Australian businesses across the supply chain, including Indigenous participation opportunities.
