Our Business

Woodside is Australia’s largest independent oil and gas company, with a proud history of safe and reliable operations spanning decades.

In 2014 we celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary, 30 years of domestic gas production and 25 years of liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports.

Woodside has an extensive portfolio of facilities which we operate on behalf of some of the world’s major oil and gas companies.

We have been operating the landmark Australian project, the North West Shelf, since 1984 and it remains one of the world’s premier LNG facilities.

With the successful start-up of the Pluto LNG Plant in 2012, Woodside now operates six of the eight LNG processing trains in Australia.

Together with the four Woodside operated offshore gas production platforms, these facilities help to meet the demand for cleaner energy from our pipeline gas customers in Australia and LNG customers in the Asia Pacific region.

Woodside also operates four oil floating production storage and offloading vessels in the Carnarvon Basin, North West Shelf and Timor Sea.

This is the largest owner-operated fleet in Australia with an excellent track record of efficiently and safely producing from current fields.

Driven by our world-class capabilities, we are committed to expanding our LNG portfolio through premium developments including the Browse Floating LNG (FLNG) Development.

We are also seeking to expand our exploration portfolio, both within Australia and globally, to generate future growth opportunities for the company.

Woodside has acreage in Australia, Myanmar, Ireland, New Zealand, Peru, the Republic of Korea, Spain, Morocco, Gabon, Cameroon and Tanzania.  Woodside has other international interests in Canada and Timor-Leste.

In 2013 Woodside established a dedicated office in Singapore to support our  growing LNG marketing, trading and shipping capabilities.

We remain focused on strengthening our relationships with customers, co-venturers, governments and communities to ensure we are a partner of choice, and attain our vision of becoming a global leader in oil and gas.
