Free Read

Dec 2 (LNGJ) – Woodside Petroleum said it signed new agreements with the Aboriginal groups in Western Australia linked to its expansion plans on the Burrup Peninsula for its Pluto and North West Shelf LNG facilities.

   “Woodside has operated on the Burrup for 35 years, and these agreements demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the successful co-existence of heritage and industry and support for long-term, positive outcomes for Aboriginal communities,” said the LNG producer.

   The first agreements were signed in 1998 with NWS LNG. “The updated commitment includes increased funding for a number of programs and benefits that are being delivered under the existing agreement. Additional support has also been made available for a number of capacity building and social investment programs,” added Woodside.
