Scarborough LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Western Australia, Australia.[1] In March 2019 Woodside Energy acquired ExxonMobil's 75% share in the project for A$444 million.[2] In January 2019 Woodside awarded four contracts for front-end engineering design activities for the project.[3] In March 2020, Macquarie Wealth Management warned that a prolonged collapse in oil prices could result in delays to the Scarborough LNG development.[4] A subsequent report that month by EnergyQuest found that the project could be delayed as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on travel, trade, energy prices, and gas companies.[5]

In March 2020, Woodside announced that it was delaying the final investment decision for the Scarborough LNG Terminal as part of a package of spending cutbacks estimated at US$32 billion it had been compelled to make owing to its plunging stock-market value brought about by turmoil in the oil and gas markets which has been exacerbated by the global coronavirus pandemic.[6]
