Media release: Scarborough announcement progress for major project

The voice of the oil and gas industry today welcomed updated advice from Woodside on the progress of its planned $US 12 billion Scarborough gas project.

APPEA WA Director Claire Wilkinson said significant headway has been made towards Woodside’s targeted final investment decision on Scarborough and Pluto Train 2 this year.

“If approved, Woodside’s proposed Scarborough development would deliver significant benefits,” Ms Wilkinson said.

“Scarborough gas would be a source of cleaner energy for Western Australia and play an important role helping overseas customers meet decarbonisation targets in their own countries.

“The development would provide thousands of construction jobs and hundreds of on-going operational jobs for Western Australians and opportunities for local businesses.”
