SUBSEA Engineering Associates Pty Ltd (SEA) has been awarded the contract for Define Phase engineering services for the Scarborough Development Export Trunkline from Woodside Energy Limited.

This will enable SEA to utilise the award-winning ICE Platform, and enable rapid delivery of engineering and a mature digital basis of design to be carried into FEED.

SEA have subcontracted INTECSEA Pty Ltd to provide specialised deepwater experience gained on international projects.

The Scarborough field is located 375 kilometres west-north-west of the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia.

The current Woodside proposal for development of the field includes a 430km large diameter export trunkline routed from a deepwater infield facility, up and over the continental shelf and onto the Woodside operated infrastructure on the Burrup Peninsula.

Woodside recently announced it has accelerated development planning the giant Scarborough gas field off the Western Australian coast.

Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the company is targeting being ready for start-up to 2023 for the upstream component of the Scarborough development and 2024 for the downstream to maximise the market opportunity.
