Australian LNG player Woodside Energy has entered into a long-term gas sale and purchase agreement with Worsley Alumina joint venture for the supply of approximately 40 PJ of pipeline gas.
Woodside said on Wednesday that the gas was being supplied to the joint venture from Woodside’s portfolio of domestic gas facilities, including the North West Shelf, Pluto, and Wheatstone.
Worsley Alumina is a joint venture held by South32, Japan Alumina Associates, and Sojitz which hold 86, 10, and 4 percent stakes each.
Woodside Executive VP of marketing, trading, and shipping Reinhardt Matisons welcomed the agreement to supply gas to the Worsley Alumina bauxite mining and refining complex in Western Australia.
“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,” Matisons said.
“Our agreement with Worsley Alumina [….] is a further demonstration of Woodside’s commitment to supplying domestic gas to consumers in Western Australia from our diverse supply portfolio,” he added.
