Western Australia boosts LNG supply and use in transport
Woodside and GE have signed an agreement to work together to support the use of LNG as a fuel in Western Australia. The agreement will provide customers with the option of seamless access to reliable LNG supply and natural gas-fueled transport and power generation solutions. According to Woodside CEO Peter Coleman, this type of collaboration is key to development of the LNG fuel market in Western Australia.
“The 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. Woodside is ideally placed to lead the transition to LNG fueling, with world-class LNG facilities in the Pilbara in close proximity to heavy industries,” he said.
Mary Hackett, Regional Director for GE Oil & Gas ANZ/PNG agreed, saying there is a pressing opportunity to develop the LNG 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.
