The recently-announced 52 per cent increase in the resource estimate for the Scarborough gas field may prompt Woodside Petroleum to retain more of its stake in the project. Woodside had previously flagged plans to reduce its 75 per cent stake in Scarborough. However, CEO Peter Coleman says Woodside still intends to reduce its stake in the Pluto 2 LNG plant by up to 50 per cent, although it is not an immediate priority. A deal with BHP to process gas from the Scarborough field via the Pluto plant is expected to be finalised by March.
