March 26, 2024 [Tank Storage]- Woodside has completed the sale of a 10% non-operating participating interest in its Scarborough Joint Venture to LJ Scarborough Pty Ltd (LNG Japan).

 

The completion follows Woodside’s announcement on 8 August 2023 that it had established a strategic relationship with LNG Japan that involved three elements: equity in the Scarborough Joint Venture; potential LNG offtake; and collaboration on potential opportunities in new energy. The sale proceeds received by Woodside of US$910 million for equity in the Scarborough Joint Venture comprises the purchase price, reimbursed expenditure and escalation.

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill welcomed completion of the sale. ‘LNG Japan’s commitment to the Scarborough Joint Venture is a demonstration of the value our customers place on gas as a long-term source of energy as they navigate the energy transition. Completion of the sale to LNG Japan is a significant milestone as we progress toward first LNG cargo from Scarborough targeted in 2026,’ she says. ‘We are also pleased to welcome Japan Organization for Metals and Energy Security’s equity investment in LJ Scarborough Pty Ltd. JOGMEC’s support reflects the contribution Scarborough gas will make to Japan’s energy security.’

Woodside holds a 90% interest in the Scarborough joint venture and will remain as operator. Following completion of the transaction with JERA announced on 23 February 2024, Woodside’s
interest will be 74.9% in the Scarborough Joint Venture.
