Ocean Infinity, the technology company specializing in collecting seabed data and its analysis, has been awarded a contract by Woodside Energy to provide data in support of the Scarborough field development.
The Scarborough field is located 375 kilometers west-north-west of the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia.
The contract involves a deepwater geophysical pre-engineering route survey, extending approximately 300 km from the Scarborough subsea field in 950 to 1400 meter water depths up the scarp break towards existing onshore LNG processing facilities on the Burrup Peninsula, the company said in a statement.
Woodside plans to process the Scarborough gas at its Pluto LNG facility. The second liquefaction train at the facility will have a 5 million tons per year.
Ocean Infinity will deploy multiple AUVs simultaneously from the 115-meter vessel Seabed Constructor to collect the data required for Woodside’s route engineering design.
The deepwater geophysical survey project will commence in mid-June 2018, the company’s statement reads.
