Subsea 7 awarded contract offshore Australia


Subsea 7 today announced the award of a large contract to Subsea Integration Alliance by Woodside, as Operator for and on behalf of the Scarborough Joint Venture, for the Scarborough project, located approximately 380km offshore North West Australia.

The project work scope covers the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) of subsea pipelines and production systems. The development will include 45 kilometres of rigid flowlines, six flexible flowline risers, 42 kilometres of umbilicals and eight trees, as well as associated subsea equipment, in water depths of approximately 950 metres.

The Subsea Integration Alliance team established during the initial front-end engineering and design (“FEED”) phase, awarded in January 2019, will now transition into the full EPCI phase. Project management and engineering will take place in Perth, Australia, with support from Subsea 7’s Global Project Centre’s offices in Malaysia, UK and France and various OneSubsea® offices.

Offshore activities are targeted to take place from 2023 to 2025 using Subsea 7’s reel-lay and flex- lay vessels.

Olivier Blaringhem, CEO Subsea Integration Alliance said: “This award is the result of a strong and collaborative early engagement process with Woodside, working with a high level of transparency and cooperation during the pre-tender and FEED phases. It demonstrates the potential value of Subsea Integration Alliance and its optimised and integrated offering capacity. We look forward to working with Woodside to deliver the project successfully and safely while maximising the client’s production objectives.”

David Bertin, Vice President for Subsea 7 Global Projects Centre and Asia Pacific said: “We are proud to be awarded this contract by Woodside. This builds on our long-standing relationship with the client and our successful track record of projects executed offshore Australia. Our local office in Perth will be supported by Subsea 7’s Global Projects Centre, underlining the strength and breadth of our project management capabilities and the capacity to deliver complex projects worldwide.”
