Scarborough Pipeline Awaits Final Investment Decision

Netherlands-based Royal Boskalis Westminster has been awarded a contract valued at $162 million (145 million euros) for seabed intervention and shore-crossing activities for the proposed Scarborough export gas pipeline in northwestern Australia.

The contract is subject to a final investment decision, which is expected in 2020, and the seabed intervention and shore crossing works are scheduled to start in March 2021 with an expected completion mid-2022.

The contract covers pre-trenching of the nearshore pipeline route along a 31-mile (50-km) section; offshore deep water excavation works; pre-lay and post-lay rock installation for pipeline and fiber optic cable crossings; the post-installation burial, and other protection works to ensure the stability of the pipeline.  

The Scarborough gas field is located 233 miles (375 km) offshore the Burrup Peninsula in northwest Australia. The proposed export pipeline will transport natural gas between the Scarborough Floating Production Unit and the onshore processing plant. P&GJ
