Processing Scarborough gas through Pluto LNG would extend the life of this world-class facility and grow future supplies for domestic and export markets.

The Scarborough gas resource is located in the Carnarvon Basin, approximately 375 km west-northwest of the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia. Estimated to contain 7.3 Tcf (2C, 100%) of dry gas. Woodside is proposing to develop the Scarborough resource with 12 subsea, high-rate gas wells tied back to a semi-submersible floating production unit moored in 900 m of water close to the Scarborough field. Gas would be transported by an ~430 km pipeline to existing LNG infrastructure on the Burrup Peninsula.

Pluto Expansion Project

Due to Scarborough's reservoir characteristics and close proximity to our Pluto LNG facilities, our preference is to process Scarborough gas through a brownfield expansion of Pluto LNG, adding a second LNG processing train.

The composition of Scarborough gas is well suited to the Pluto LNG plant, which is designed for lean gas and nitrogen removal.
