Strategic Expansion into the Pacific Basin

Under the leadership of CEO Meg O’Neill, Woodside is expanding its reach into the Pacific Basin. This agreement not only adds a new source of LNG to Woodside’s trading portfolio but also enhances the company’s geographic diversity in the Pacific region. The deal involves sourcing LNG from the Saguaro Energia LNG Project, situated in Puerto Libertad, Sonora, Mexico. This strategic location offers proximity to key markets in Asia, a crucial factor in Woodside’s expansion plans.
