North West Shelf Project
As stated on Woodside’s website, the NWS Project’s facilities represent one of Australia’s largest oil and gas developments and an investment of more than $34 billion.
Accounting for more than one third of Australia’s oil and gas production, the NWS Project is a joint venture between six major international companies. It is one of the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers, supplying oil and gas to Australian and international markets from huge offshore gas, oil and condensate fields in the Carnarvon Basin off the north-west coast of Australia.
