Subsea 7 clinches Woodside contract for Scarborough project off Australia

Australian LNG player Woodside has awarded a contract to a joint venture of UK-based Subsea 7 and Schlumberger’s OneSubsea for the Scarborough project offshore Australia.

Subsea 7 said in a statement on Friday that the contract has a price tag of between $300 million and $500 million.

Under the deal, Subsea Integration Alliance would provide engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) of subsea pipelines and production systems, the statement said.

The development will include 45 kilometers of rigid flowlines, six flexible flowline risers, 42 kilometers of umbilicals and eight trees, as well as associated subsea equipment, in water depths of approximately 950 meters.

Furthermore, the Subsea Integration Alliance team established during the initial front-end engineering and design (FEED) phase, awarded in January 2019, would now transition into the full EPCI phase, according to Subsea 7.

Subsea 7 said project management and engineering would take place in Perth, Australia, with support from the company’s global project offices in Malaysia, UK and France, and various OneSubsea offices.

Also, the project’s offshore activities would take place from 2023 to 2025 using the company’s reel-lay and flex-lay vessels, it said.

Woodside made in November the final investment decision on the Scarborough and Pluto LNG Train 2 developments worth about $ 12 billion.

The approval also includes new domestic gas facilities and modifications to the first Pluto 4.9 mtpa train on Western Australia’s Burrup Peninsula.

Pluto Train 2 will process gas from the Scarborough offshore gas resource and have a capacity of about 5 mtpa.
