Woodside’s Australian portfolio consists of operated and non-operated oil and gas projects across Australia. Woodside’s international portfolio includes assets in the US Gulf of Mexico, Africa and the Caribbean with embedded growth options.

Founded in Australia with a spirit of innovation and determination

In 1954, a small group of explorers began drilling for oil, near a Victorian town called Woodside, in the Gippsland Basin. In the early 1970s, we discovered major offshore gas fields in Western Australia. In 1984, we commissioned the North West Shelf, Australia’s largest ever resources project. And in 1989, we exported Australia’s first cargo of LNG.

We have a portfolio of quality assets and more than 35 years of safe and reliable operating experience. Our recently expanded global portfolio includes quality operational assets in the Gulf of Mexico (US) and Trinidad and Tobago.
