McDermott won Scarborough LNG project’s EPCIC contract
McDermott International has been awarded a contract by Woodside, the operator for Scarborough gas development project, for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) services of the project.
McDermott International has been awarded a contract by Woodside, the operator of the Scarborough gas development project, for the EPCIC services of the project’s floating production unit (FPU) offshore Western Australia. “The integrated scope also includes the design, fabrication, integration, transportation and installation of the hull and topsides.”
Earlier, McDermott had completed the FEED work for the Scarborough project.
The FPU processes natural gas, which includes gas separation, dehydration and compression as well as mono ethylene glycol regeneration and produced-water handling. Designed for a production capacity of up to 1.8 BCF/D, the topside will be connected to the semi-submersible hull and pre-commissioned prior to transportation and installation in a water depth of 950-M, approximately 400-Km offshore Western Australia. “The FPU will be capable of being remotely operated and minimally staffed during normal production operations.”
According to the Global LNG Database®, Scarborough’s gas production to be allocated to: Pluto Train 2: for producing 5 MMT/Y of LNG; Pluto Train 1: for producing 3 MMT/Y of LNG; and Domestic gas: 250 TJ/day.
Refer to a works approval awarded by the Wester Australia’s Department of Water and Environmental Regulation in May 2021, Woodside's planned second train at Pluto will feature six highly efficient aero-derivative gas turbines to drive the compressors and have a capacity of up to 5.3 MMT/Y of LNG.

McDermott said that it brings the engineering and execution expertise to deliver integrated deepwater subsea projects and offshore FPUs to the highest standards. "Further, the facilities incorporate energy efficiency in design to reduce Scarborough's offshore emissions."
The topside, which will be approximately 30,000 tons, will be fabricated by McDermott's joint venture fabrication yard, Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan, in China. The project scope includes a battery energy storage system to reduce emissions on the topsides and support Woodside's net emissions reduction targets, according to McDermott.
