Woodside Energy and Energy Developments (EDL) will collaborate to supply LNG to a minerals project.
Sheffield Resources has entered into an agreement with Woodside and EDL for the supply and delivery of 1,950 TJ per annum of LNG to its Thunderbird Mineral Sands Project in the north of Western Australia.
Under the 15-year deal, LNG will be supplied from Woodside’s Pluto LNG truck loading facility near Karratha and transported to Thunderbird’s own LNG storage facility via a purpose-built road tanker fleet owned and operated by Woodside and EDL.
Sheffield Managing Director Bruce McFadzean said the company’s relationship with Woodside and EDL was providing significant benefits.
“We are extremely pleased with the level of support shown by Woodside and EDL in delivering a low cost, long-term energy solution for Thunderbird,” he said.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with Woodside and EDL as we move toward development during 2019.”
The Thunderbird LNG storage and power station facilities will be built under separate agreements with third parties.
