Profile

Woodside is Australia’s largest independent oil and gas company with a global portfolio, recognised for our world-class capabilities – as an explorer, a developer, a producer and supplier of energy.  ​


Our mission is to deliver superior shareholder returns through realising our vision of becoming a global leader in upstream oil and gas. 

Our assets are renowned for their safety, reliability and efficiency, and we are Australia’s most experienced liquefied natural gas (LNG) operator. We operate 8% of global LNG supply.1 

Our producing assets in Australia include the landmark North West Shelf (NWS) Project, which has been operating since 1984. In 2012, we commenced production from the Pluto LNG Plant and will add additional volumes from our non-operated Wheatstone LNG interests in mid-2017.

Today, we continue to be at the forefront of our industry by seeking to grow new markets for LNG. To achieve this we are planning for Australia’s first LNG fuel hub to capture growing land and marine LNG fuel markets. 

We also operate a fleet of floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facilities. From mid-2019, we will add additional oil production from the Greater Enfield Project via our existing Ngujima-Yin FPSO facility. 

We continue to expand our capabilities in marketing, trading and shipping and have enduring relationships that span more than 25 years with foundation customers throughout the Asia-Pacific region. 

As a low-cost energy supplier with a sustainable business model, we are pursuing opportunities to deliver affordable energy to the world’s growing markets. 

Our global exploration portfolio includes emerging and frontier provinces in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, the Atlantic Margins and Sub-Saharan Africa. 

We have significant equity interests in high-quality development opportunities in Australia, Senegal, Myanmar and North America and are pursuing new concepts, technology and contracting strategies to enable the earliest commercialisation of these resources in line with global demand. 

We believe that technology and innovation are essential to bringing down costs and unlocking future growth. Today, we are pioneering remote support and the application of artificial intelligence and advanced analytics across our operations. 

We recognise that long-term meaningful relationships with communities are fundamental to maintaining our licence to operate, and we work to build mutually beneficial relationships. 

Woodside is characterised by strong safety and environmental performance in all locations where we are active and we are committed to upholding our values of integrity, respect, working sustainably, discipline, excellence and working together. 

Our success is driven by our people and we aim to attract, develop and retain a diverse high-performing workforce. Our proven track record, distinctive capabilities and ability to manage risk and volatility are underpinned by more than 60 years of experience, making us a partner of choice.
