Woodside Energy joins Aiming for Zero

September 26, 2022

Australian producer Woodside Energy is the latest signatory to the Aiming for Zero Methane Emissions Initiative. It joins QatarEnergy, Wintershall DEA, Neptune Energy and  the 12 member companies of the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) in a bid to achieve near-zero methane emissions from operated oil and gas assets by 2030.

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill said: “Signing this initiative is an example of our commitment to meeting our own emissions reduction targets, and to encouraging our entire industry to join this effort.

“Minimizing methane emissions has historically been a priority for Woodside. For example, frontline engineering, operations and maintenance staff are empowered to understand and act on methane emissions to support a sustainable ‘find and fix’ philosophy that can be implemented by site personnel,” she added.

OGCI Executive Committee Chair Bjørn Otto Sverdrup said: “I am delighted Woodside Energy has joined the Aiming for Zero Methane Emissions Initiative. Woodside’s commitment further strengthens the initiative, sending a clear signal that the time for incremental change is past.”
