Browse is Australia's largest untapped conventional gas resource.

Woodside, as Operator for and on behalf of the Browse Joint Venture, is proposing to develop the Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa fields located approximately 425 km north of Broome in the offshore Browse Basin. Hydrocarbon resources contained in these fields are predominately gas, with contingent resources of 13.9 trillion cubic feet of dry gas, and approximately 390 million barrels of condensate.

The timing is right

In November 2018, the Browse Joint Venture, the North West Shelf Joint Venture and Chevron, the leaseholder of the Clio-Acme fields, signed non-binding preliminary agreements for processing offshore gas resources through the North West Shelf Project facilities on Western Australia’s Burrup Peninsula.
