First modules arrive for Scarborough

The first three Pluto Train 2 modules for Woodside Energy’s Scarborough Energy Project have arrived in Karratha, WA.

Fabricated by Bechtel in Indonesia, the modules weigh a combined total of 4000 metric tonnes and are three of the total 51 that will be shipped to site to form Pluto Train 2.

Pluto Train 2 will be the second LNG production train at the existing Pluto LNG onshore facility, and will process gas from the offshore Scarborough development.

Woodside Energy chief executive officer Meg O’Neill said the delivery was a key milestone for the project.

“The safe and timely arrival of the module is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Woodside team and our lead contractor Bechtel,” O’Neill said.

“With the Scarborough Energy Project sitting at more than 55 per cent complete, we are making significant progress across all scopes of work and look forward to receiving the remaining modules on site throughout 2024.”

Bechtel Energy president Paul Marsden said the achievement showcases Bechtel’s commitment to safety.

“Fuelled by the passion to deliver excellence and foster sustainable practices, we are creating a lasting impact on the communities where we live and work,” Marsden said.

“Our teams of extraordinary people, leveraging our global experience in delivering LNG projects, are instrumental in supporting the quality execution of the work on Pluto Train 2.”
