The Woodside-operated North West Shelf (NWS) project is a joint-venture between six major international companies, and its facilities constitute Australia’s oil and gas development, representing an investment of over $34bn.

NWS produces liquefied petroleum gas, oil and condensate for international energy markets.

Woodside took the Pluto LNG project from discovery in 2005 to first production just seven years later. The project was started in April 2012.
