‘Fair and reasonable’ job opportunities

Woodside’s preferred concept for the development includes transporting 7.3 trillion cubic feet (2C, 100 per cent) of Scarborough gas resource through a 430 km pipeline to a proposed expansion of the existing Pluto LNG Onshore Facility.

The JV promises local companies will have a “full, fair and reasonable opportunity to participate in contracting opportunities”. Local supply chain opportunities will increase during the construction phase of the projects, one venture partners reach final investment decisions on the Scarborough and Pluto Train 2 projects.

Woodside expects that will happen in the year 2020 and start-up activity will begin in 2023.
