Woodside Energy, together with GE, have signed an agreement to support the use of LNG as a key fuel source in Western Australia.
This agreement will provide customers the opportunity to access LNG fuel supplies, gas-fuelled transport and power generation solutions.
Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said this partnership was key to developing the state’s LNG fuel market.
“This agreement between our companies will harness the combined experience and offerings of Woodside and GE, allowing customers to choose LNG as a fuel that will deliver significant cost and emissions reductions,” he said.
Coleman added that Woodside was best placed to lead the transition to LNG fuel in the state, due to the company’s LNG facilities in the Pilbara and its proximity to heavy industries.
Regional director for GE Oil & Gas ANZ/PNG, Mary Hackett, said there was an opportunity to develop the LNG fuel market as a transition fuel that provides an alternate, cleaner fuel source.
“Developing new fuel technology to power industries such as marine, transportation and mining is key – and as a digital industrial company that works across multiple industries and sectors, GE looks forward to working with Woodside to deliver gas technology solutions for customers,” she said.
