Japan NRG sat down with Meg O’Neill, the CEO of Woodside Energy, which has recently merged with BHP’s oil and gas assets, to create one of the world’s top 10 independent energy companies. Woodside Energy is also heavily involved in Japan’s market energy and works with Japanese companies on projects in Australia. Meg shared her thoughts on future development of the Japanese market and its standing in Asia, among other topics. An extract of the interview is below.
In light of the merger with BHP’s oil and gas assets, and the tumult in global gas markets, how has your LNG strategy changed over the past 6 months?
Our strategy is to thrive through the energy transition with a low-cost, lower-carbon, profitable, resilient and diversified portfolio. This strategy remains unchanged following the merger with BHP’s petroleum business, with Woodside becoming a bigger supplier of the energy that the world needs now and will demand in the future.
The merger delivers a diverse portfolio of quality operating assets, plus a suite of growth opportunities across oil, gas and new energy that promises ongoing value for our shareholders.
