Woodside is an independent Australian oil and gas company playing a key role in supplying energy to our region.
We are one of the world’s leading producers of liquefied natural gas, helping meet the demands for cleaner energy from Japan, China, Korea and other countries in the Asia Pacific region.
Woodside was formed in 1954, focused initially on oil exploration off Australia’s south coast.
Major natural gas discoveries off the Western Australian coast in the 1970s changed the company’s direction, and today Woodside is one of the world’s preeminent producers of LNG.
We operate the A$27 billion North West Shelf Project, which in 2009 celebrated 25 years of natural gas production and 20 years of LNG production.
We pride ourselves as a stable and reliable supplier with a focus on delivering on our commitments.
Woodside’s production of LNG continues to grow, with first LNG cargo from the Pluto foundation project estimated for March 2012.
We are already planning for an expansion of our Pluto project, and are seeking to develop a further two LNG projects – Browse in Australia’s Kimberley region and Sunrise off the northern coast.
Woodside also maintains a portfolio of non-LNG projects. We produce natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, condensate and oil for customers in Australia and elsewhere.
With our large natural gas resource base, Woodside is a sought-after provider of cleaner energy. We seek excellence in environmental performance, and aim to ensure that wherever we operate, the local community benefits from our presence.
