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.
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.
