Australian growth projects
Delivering the next wave of growth
We are progressing a number of new developments that will utilise our existing facilities in Australia's north-west, providing ongoing employment and local content opportunities for decades to come.
Together with our joint venture participants, Woodside is progressing new natural gas and energy projects in the Pilbara, Western Australia.
This involves the proposed development of the Scarborough and Browse offshore gas fields, as well as a number of onshore expansion and third-party processing opportunities that would utilise existing and proven facilities at Pluto LNG and the North West Shelf Project.
Building on Woodside’s 40-year history in the Pilbara, these projects would ensure the continued supply of domestic and export energy, providing significant economic and community benefits for decades to come.
We are committed to understanding and managing the environmental, cultural and social impacts and opportunities of our proposed growth projects. Woodside continues to consult with relevant stakeholders to progress all outstanding environmental approvals.

Australian Cultural Heritage Management
We take seriously our obligations to preserve cultural heritage.
Burrup Hub Air Quality
We understand the importance of air quality on the Burrup Peninsula.
Burrup Hub Greenhouse Gas Emissions
We recognise the scientific consensus on climate change.
Developing the Burrup Hub means those facilities will continue producing gas for another 30 years and beyond, supplying a reliable, low-emissions energy source to customers around the world and in WA.

Accommodating Growth in Karratha
Economic modelling suggests that up to 460 additional local Karratha operations jobs will be created or sustained on average as a part of the A$40 billion Burrup Hub transformation. To be successful, we need to balance our residential focus with the use of fly-in-fly-out workers for construction, shutdowns and certain specialist projects.
As we prepare to enter a growth and construction phase, we are committed to continuing to engage transparently.
Woodside is working to contribute to lowering global emissions by supplying gas, lowering our net emissions and developing innovative new market and technologies for the efficient delivery of energy.
Part of the Community
Woodside plays an active role in contributing to the wellbeing and sustainability of the communities we are part of.
Strong environmental performance is essential to our success and continued growth.
