Woodside is closely monitoring the impact of Tropical Cyclone Veronica, which was located approximately 95 kilometres east north east of Karratha at 5.00 am AWST on 25 March 2019.

At this time, the safety and welfare of our people, their families and our communities is our highest priority.

Due to the severe weather conditions associated with the cyclone, Woodside has evacuated all personnel from our offshore production platforms, and is operating the Karratha Gas Plant and Pluto LNG Plant using essential staff only.

Once the immediate risks have passed, Woodside’s focus will remain the ongoing welfare of our people, their families and our communities, and the safe return to full operations of our production facilities.

We will also engage with local authorities to understand what assistance we can provide to the community.
