UK-based services provider Wood has been awarded a new contract by Woodside to support the execution of concept definition for the proposed Scarborough upstream development, offshore Western Australia.
Concept definition level engineering associated with the floating production unit, subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines, flow assurance and overall system integration of the upstream development, will be delivered by Wood’s team in Houston, US and Perth, Australia.
Wood has also supported Woodside’s Greater Western Flank (GWF-2) project on Australia’s North West Shelf from concept development to execution, providing detailed design, procurement activities and engineering support for the subsea pipeline during fabrication and construction.
Earlier this year, the company awarded Wood three contracts to perform subsea and flow assurance concept studies supporting the proposed SNE field development in the Rufisque, Sangomar and Sangomar deep offshore blocks located offshore Senegal.
Since acquiring ExxonMobil’s interest in the Scarborough gas field, Woodside upped the pace on the development of the project.
The field located off Australia’s northwestern coast will initially provide feed gas for the second liquefaction train at the Pluto LNG facility.
