Woodside Petroleum corporate report

Woodside Petroleum corporate report

Report summary

Woodside’s financial strength and LNG portfolio has been a competitive advantage during the oil price downturn. Counter-cyclical exploration and M&A activity is re-invigorating the portfolio and boosting medium to longer-term growth options. But work is still required to improve visibility beyond 2020 and there are a number of risk to our base-case. In the near-term, priorities will continue to focus on maintaining the performance of the long-life Pluto and NWS LNG projects, protect cash flow and shareholder returns.
