From the first LNG plant in the southern hemisphere, to the world’s largest not-normally crewed offshore platform, Woodside has long been a leader in applying oil and gas technologies.

Now, we are taking the industry to new frontiers by adopting and developing innovations that build on our strengths - yet challenge our thinking.

How we work

Innovation enables us to discover, develop and test ideas and solutions that can improve the way we work across our entire business. 

Innovative thinking shapes everything we do at Woodside, from the design of our facilities to the commercial arrangements that underpin them, and the way we and our joint venture partners interact with others in resource development.

It's about doing more than building a better workplace or industry sector. Through our collaborative partnerships, we also help build society's collective knowledge and develop the workforce of the future.
