MMA bags Scarborough gig from Woodside

Australia’s MMA Offshore said it has secured a contract from compatriot LNG player Woodside for the Scarborough project located off the coast of Western Australia.

Under the contract, MMA would support offshore field development drilling for the Scarborough project, the company said in a statement on Monday.

The contract is for a firm period of 350 days, with additional options available to Woodside, the operator of the Scarborough JV which includes BHP Petroleum.

MMA said that it expects operations under the contract to start in the second quarter of 2023.

The 2012-built PSV MMA Inscription would continue on its current contract through to the end of 2022, followed by a scheduled dry-docking immediately prior to commencing this key development drilling campaign, MMA said.

MMA did not provide the price tag of the deal.

Woodside took the final investment decisions on the Scarborough and Pluto LNG Train 2 projects in November last year.

Besides the second train, 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.

The train will get gas from the gas field, located about 375 km off the coast of Western Australia, through a new trunkline long about 430 km.
