Investor Call

June 2024

Disclaimer and important notes

No offer or advice

  • This call is not intended to and does not constitute, form part of, or contain an offer or invitation to sell to Woodside shareholders (or any other person), or a solicitation of an offer from Woodside shareholders (or any other person), or a solicitation of any vote or approval from Woodside shareholders (or any other person) in any jurisdiction.
  • This call has been prepared without reference to the investment objectives, financial and taxation situation or particular needs of any Woodside shareholder or any other person. The information contained in this presentation does not constitute, and should not be taken as, financial product or investment advice. Woodside encourages you to seek independent legal, financial, taxation and other professional advice before making any investment decision.
  • This call shall not be distributed, transmitted, published, reproduced or otherwise made available to any other person, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, for any purposes whatsoever. In particular, this call and the information contained herein may not be taken or transmitted, in, into or from and may not be copied, forwarded, distributed or transmitted in or into any jurisdiction in which such release, publication or distribution would be unlawful. The release, presentation, publication or distribution of this call, in whole or in part, in certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law or regulation, and persons into whose possession this presentation comes should inform themselves about, and observe, any such restrictions. Any failure to comply with these restrictions may constitute a violation of the laws of the relevant jurisdiction. Woodside does not accept liability to any person in relation to the distribution or possession of this call in or from any such jurisdiction.
  • Woodside is not aware of any new information or data that materially affects the information included in the Reserves and Resources Update. All the material assumptions and technical parameters underpinning the estimates in the Reserves and Resources Update continue to apply and have not materially changed.
  • Woodside reports its petroleum resource estimates inclusive of all fuel consumed in operations.
  • For offshore oil projects, the reference point is defined as the outlet of the floating production storage and offloading facility (FPSO) or platform, while for the onshore gas projects the reference point is defined as the outlet of the downstream (onshore) gas processing facility.
  • Woodside uses both deterministic and probabilistic methods for the estimation of Reserves and Contingent Resources at the field and project levels. All Proved (1P) Reserves estimates have been estimated using deterministic methodology and reported on a net interest basis in accordance with the SEC regulations and have been determined in accordance with SEC Rule 4-10(a) of Regulation S-X. Unless otherwise stated, all petroleum estimates reported at the company or region level are aggregated by arithmetic summation by category. The aggregated Proved (1P) Reserves may be a conservative estimate due to the portfolio effects of arithmetic summation.
  • 'MMboe' means millions (106) of barrels of oil equivalent. Natural gas volumes are converted to oil equivalent volumes via a constant conversion factor, which for Woodside is 5.7 Bcf of dry gas per 1 MMboe. Volumes of natural gas liquids, oil and condensate are converted from MMbbl to MMboe on a 1:1 ratio.

Forward-looking statements

  • This call may contain forward-looking statements with respect to Woodside's business and operations, market conditions, results of operations and financial conditions which reflect Woodside's views held as at the date of this call. All statements, other than statements of historical or present facts, are forward-looking statements and generally may be identified by the use of forward- looking words such as 'guidance', 'foresee', 'likely', 'potential', 'anticipate', 'believe', 'aim', 'estimate', 'expect', 'intend', 'may', 'target', 'plan', 'forecast', 'project', 'schedule', 'will', 'should', 'seek' and other similar words or expressions.
  • Forward-lookingstatements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to inherent known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of Woodside, its related bodies corporate and their respective officers, directors, employees, advisers, or representatives. Details of the key risks relating to Woodside and its business can be found in the "Risk" sections of Woodside's most recent Annual Report released to the Australian Securities Exchange, Woodside's Climate Transition Action Plan and 2023 Progress Report, and in Woodside's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including Woodside's Annual Report on Form 20-F. You should review and have regard to these risks when considering the information contained in this call.
  • Investors are strongly cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Actual results or performance may vary materially from those expressed in, or implied by any forward-looking statements.

Notes to petroleum resource estimates

  • Unless otherwise stated, all petroleum resource estimates are quoted as at the effective date (i.e. 31 December 2023) of the
    Reserves and Resources Statement included in Woodside's most recent Annual Report released to the Australian Securities Exchange and the London Stock Exchange and in Woodside's most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC and available on the Woodside website at, net Woodside share at standard oilfield conditions of 14.696 psi (101.325 kPa) and 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.56 degrees Celsius).
  • Woodside estimates and reports its Proved (1P) Reserves in accordance with the SEC regulations, which are also compliant with SPE-PRMS guidelines. SEC-compliant Proved (1P) Reserves estimates use a more restrictive, rules-based approach and are generally lower than estimates prepared solely in accordance with SPE-PRMS guidelines due to, among other things, the requirement to use commodity prices based on the average of first of month prices during the 12-month period in the reporting company's fiscal year. Woodside estimates and reports its Proved plus Probable (2P) Reserves and Best Estimate (2C) Contingent Resources in accordance with SPE-PRMS guidelines.

Additional information for US investors concerning resource estimates

  • Woodside is an Australian company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, the New York Stock Exchange, and the London Stock Exchange. As noted above, Woodside estimates and reports its proved reserves in accordance with SEC regulations, which are also compliant with SPE-PRMS guidelines, and estimates and reports its proved plus probable reserves and 2C contingent resources in accordance with SPE-PRMS guidelines. Woodside reports all petroleum resource estimates using definitions consistent with SPE-PRMS.
  • The SEC prohibits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, from disclosing estimates of oil or gas resources other than 'reserves' (as that term is defined by the SEC). In this announcement, Woodside includes estimates of quantities of oil and gas using certain terms, such as 'proved plus probable (2P) reserves', 'best estimate (2C) contingent resources', 'reserves and contingent resources', 'proved plus probable', 'developed and undeveloped', 'probable developed', 'probable undeveloped', 'contingent resources' or other descriptions of volumes of reserves, which terms include quantities of oil and gas that may not meet the SEC's definitions of proved, probable and possible reserves, and which the SEC's guidelines strictly prohibit Woodside from including in filings with the SEC. These types of estimates do not represent, and are not intended to represent, any category of reserves based on SEC definitions, and may differ from and may not be comparable to the same or similarly-named measures used by other companies. These estimates are by their nature more speculative than estimates of proved reserves and would require substantial capital spending over a significant number of years to implement recovery, and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk of not being recovered by Woodside. In addition, actual locations drilled and quantities that may be ultimately recovered from Woodside's properties may differ substantially. Woodside has made no commitment to drill, and likely will not drill, all drilling locations that have been attributable to these quantities. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosures in Woodside's most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC and available on the Woodside website at and its other filings with the SEC, which are available at


Our strategy is to thrive through the energy transition

Thrive through the energy transition

Goals which drive our strategic direction





Providing energy

Creating and returning value

Conducting our business sustainably

through a high-quality portfolio, geographically advantaged to meet growing LNG demand2
