Australian oil and gas Woodside has signed a long-term agreement for gas supply to a mining and refining complex in Western Australia’s southwest.
Woodside said on Wednesday the gas sales agreement had been signed with Worsley Alumina Joint Venture for the supply of approximately 40 PJ of pipeline gas.
According to the oil and gas company, the gas is being supplied from Woodside’s portfolio of Australian gas facilities, including the offshore gas from the North West Shelf, Pluto, and Wheatstone.
Worsley Alumina Joint Venture is held by South32 (86%), Japan Alumina Associates (10%) and Sojitz (4%).
Woodside Executive Vice President Marketing Trading & Shipping Reinhardt Matisons said: “Over recent months we’ve commissioned the Pluto pipeline gas and LNG truck loading facilities and started domestic gas production at Wheatstone, building on our foundation domestic gas business at the North West Shelf.”
“Our agreement with Worsley Alumina, which makes a significant contribution to jobs and prosperity in its local community, is a further demonstration of Woodside’s commitment to supplying domestic gas to consumers in Western Australia from our diverse supply portfolio,” he said.
