PERTH, Australia – Woodside Energy has issued updates on various development projects offshore Western Australia and Senegal.
The company has taken a final investment decision (FID) for the Pyxis Hub project, a subsea tieback of the Pyxis, Pluto North and Xena 2 infill wells, and has awarded contracts for design and installation of subsea equipment infrastructure.
This new hub will also support the future operation of Pluto LNG, the Pluto-NWS Interconnector, and Woodside’s broader plans for the Burrup Hub.
At the end of 3Q, the Pluto water handling project was 59% complete and on schedule. Woodside is aiming for FID for the offshore Scarborough gas field development during H1 2020, and negotiations continue for processing the gas through Pluto Train 2.
Also, a geophysical interpretation and integrated subsurface study of the Scarborough gas resource is under way. Early results indicate a material increase in gas volumes.
Talks continue on the Browse gas processing agreement and the Browse partners expects to start front-end engineering design by the end of this year.
In this case, the target for FID is H1 2021. A geophysical survey over the proposed trunkline route was completed in August.
Next month, Woodside expects work to finish on a high-definition 3D marine seismic survey across the SNE, FAN and SNE North-Spica areas off Senegal, which started in July.
