    Australia's Woodside Petroleum said on Wednesday first quarter revenue rose 30 percent from a year earlier on increased output and higher liquefied natural gas (LNG) prices. The country's largest independent oil and gas producer said revenue rose to $1.17 billion for the quarter ended March 31, compared with $902.4 million a year ago. "Output from Wheatstone underpinned an increase in LNG production in the first three months of this year," said Woodside CEO Peter Coleman.

    How Australia-East Timor treaty unlocks $65 billion gas fields

    SINGAPORE/MELBOURNE (Reuters) - East Timor and Australia this week signed a treaty at the United Nations setting their maritime boundary for the first time, and striking a deal on sharing an estimated $65 billion (46.8 billion pounds) in potential revenues from the Greater Sunrise gas fields in the Timor Sea. For impoverished East Timor, with a population of just 1.3 million, development of the fields is crucial -- its main source of revenue since 2004, the Bayu Undan gas field, is set to run out of gas by 2022. The treaty signing in New York on Tuesday marked the first conciliation under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) — a process UN Secretary‑General António Guterres said could offer other countries a path towards resolving contentious maritime boundary disputes.

    Woodside, partners dismayed Australia, East Timor have no plan for Greater Sunrise

    Woodside Petroleum and its partners said they were disappointed that Australia and East Timor had failed to settle on a development plan for the Greater Sunrise gas fields between the two countries as part of the process ending a long-running maritime border dispute on Wednesday. "It is disappointing that this process has not resulted in an alignment on a development concept," a spokeswoman for the Sunrise Joint Venture said in a statement. Woodside is operator of the Sunrise joint venture, co-owned by Royal Dutch Shell, ConocoPhillips and Osaka Gas, which had shelved plans for developing the Greater Sunrise gas fields between East Timor and Australia due to the two nations' border dispute.

    Australian regulator authorises some LNG producers to coordinate maintenance

    The Australian competition regulator on Friday said it would allow Chevron, INPEX, Shell, and Woodside Petroleum to coordinate maintenance activities at their liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. "LNG producers can now schedule maintenance together without risking breaching competition laws, reducing concurrent work at their facilities," Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) Chairman Rod Sims said in a statement.

    COLUMN-Interest in LNG fires up again, but the market's different now: Russell

    If you were looking for signs that the liquefied natural gas (LNG) merry-go-round is starting to spin a little faster, the announcement of a planned massive expansion in Papua New Guinea is ample evidence. Global majors Exxon Mobil and Total are considering plans to double LNG exports from Papua New Guinea to about 16 million tonnes per annum, their partner Oil Search said on Feb. 20. If approved, three new trains would be added to the existing Exxon-operated PNG LNG facility, with natural gas from Total's fields supplying two of the units and the third using existing fields and a new Exxon development.
