Summary

Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM), through its affiliate Esso Australia Resources Pty Ltd, and BHP Billiton Ltd (BHP) are undertaking the Scarborough FLNG Plant project on the coast of Western Australia in the Carnarvon Basin, Australia.

The project involves the construction of a FLNG facility to process 1.1 Bcf/day of gas, producing an estimated 6-7 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) of LNG from five trains.

The project will include the drilling of 12 wells, which will be developed in two phases.

Nuffield Group has been appointed as a lead consultant.

In addition to the gas treatment and liquefaction facilities, the project also features the development of vessel to be fitted with up to 10 storage tanks inside the hull, with an onboard storage capacity of around 380,000 m3, around 80-110 cargoes would be offloaded from the facility each year.

In May 2009, a pre-front-end engineering and design (Pre-FEED) contract was awarded to an alliance of Mustang Engineering, JP Kenny and FloaTec.

In April 2013, XOM and BHP submitted an application to the Federal Environment Department for approval. The document confirms that the FLNG platform would be capable of producing 6-7MMTPA of LNG.

In November 2013, the project obtained preliminary approvals from the Federal Environmental Department.

Pre-feasibility study activities are underway. However, the project plans are moving in slow pace due to a reduction in LNG prices.
