About Woodside


Woodside is the pioneer of the LNG industry in Australia and the largest Australian natural gas producer. We have an outstanding base business of world-class assets and strong growth prospects – plus the experience, capability and vision to make things happen. As Australia’s premier LNG operator, we produce 6% of global LNG supply.


Our producing LNG assets in the north west of Australia are among the world’s best facilities, renowned for their safety, reliability and efficiency. We have significant equity interests in high-quality development opportunities, combined with a strong track record in project delivery from more than 60 years’ experience. We are creating an integrated LNG production centre on the Burrup Peninsula in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Our exploration plan focuses on established, emerging and future growth hubs in Australia, Myanmar, Senegal, Gabon, Peru and Bulgaria.


Wherever we work, we are committed to upholding our values of integrity, respect, discipline, excellence, working sustainably and working together.


Technology and innovation are essential to our long-term sustainability. Today, we are pioneering remote support and the application of artificial intelligence and advanced analytics in our business. Technology also features in Mia Yellagonga, our state-of-the-art campus in Perth, Western Australia. Mia Yellagonga has a six Green Star rating, advanced wellness features and a variety of workspace choices.


We will play our part in the global response to climate change by continuing to provide reliable and sustainable energy in a lower-carbon future. Our contribution includes reducing and managing our own emissions, and developing new markets for LNG to displace higher-emissions fuels. 


Our success is driven by our people, and we aim to attract, develop and retain a diverse, high-performing workforce.
