The agreements build on existing long-term partnerships with NYFL and MAC.

Woodside has signed new agreements with the Ngarluma Yindjibarndi Foundation Limited (NYFL), and the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation (MAC).

“We are pleased to extend and expand our community, cultural, heritage and economic participation arrangements with NYFL and MAC in line with our plans to continue the NWS and Pluto operations for decades to come,” said Woodside Senior Vice President NWS & Burrup Niall Myles.

“Woodside has operated on the Burrup for 35 years, and these agreements demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the successful co-existence of heritage and industry and support for long-term, positive outcomes for Aboriginal communities.”

The NWS Joint Venture and NYFL first signed an agreement in 1998. The updated commitment includes increased funding for a number of programs and benefits that are being delivered under the existing agreement. Additional support has also been made available for a number of capacity building and social investment programs.

The agreement with MAC provides ongoing funding for the Murujuga Rangers, support for education and training initiatives, and funding for rock art management and World Heritage Listing.
