Exploring

We continue to build a global exploration portfolio of high-quality prospects and execute high-impact drilling to generate future growth opportunities and deliver value in our key exploration hubs.

Woodside's global exploration portfolio targets three focus areas based on our experience and in-depth studies of regional petroleum systems -  Australia and the Asia-Pacific​, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Atlantic Margins.

Our portfolio includes permit interests in Australia, Myanmar, Senegal, Morocco, Gabon, Ireland, New Zealand and Peru.

This diverse portfolio reflects the company's global exploration strategy – to grow and high-grade our portfolio with an emphasis on emerging petroleum provinces characterised by materiality and optionality.

Across our current permit interests we see an opportunity to leverage our core capabilities, particularly in deepwater exploration, technology and innovation and project development, to create increased value for our shareholders.

We continue to build prospect inventories in our core focus areas and mature drilling candidates, with plans to drill a number of high-impact wells in 2018 and 2019.

We continuously evaluate new exploration opportunities around the globe that offer a clear line of sight between our core capabilities and building long-term value.​
