Chevron is putting its stake in Australia’s North West Shelf (NSW) project up for sale.
The company’s 16.67 per cent interest in the $34 billion joint venture (JV) could be worth more than $5 billion, with Chevron moving ahead with the sale after receiving what it described as “a number of unsolicited approaches”.
NWS is one of the world’s largest oil and gas projects and has shipped more than 5,000 LNG cargoes in the last 30 years, producing gas, oil and condensate from fields in Western Australia’s offshore Carnarvon Basin.
While no interested parties have yet been named, Credit Suisse told The Australian potential buyers could include PetroChina, China National Offshore Oil Cooperation (CNOOC) and Woodside.
