About the Scarborough Project
The Scarborough field is located approximately 375 km off the coast of Western Australia.?The Scarborough project will include the installation of a floating production unit with eight wells drilled in the initial phase and thirteen wells drilled over the life of the Scarborough field. The gas will be transported for processing at Pluto LNG through a new trunkline of approximately 430 km in length. Approximately five million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of Scarborough gas will be processed through Pluto Train 2, with up to 3 Mtpa processed through the existing Pluto Train 1. First LNG cargo is targeted for 2026.?
The Scarborough reservoir contains less than 0.1% carbon dioxide and combined with processing design efficiencies at the floating production unit (offshore) and Pluto Train 2 (onshore), as well as the modified existing Train 1, will deliver one of the lowest carbon intensity projects for LNG delivered into Asian markets.
