Woodside has successfully delivered the first oil from the Sangomar field offshore Senegal, marking a historic milestone for both the company and the country.

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill expressed her satisfaction with this achievement, stating that it reflects the company’s strategy and expected shareholder value generation within the production sharing contract terms. She also highlighted the commitment of teams who have overcome challenges to meet strategic objectives in a complex environment.

The successful delivery of Senegal’s first offshore oil project amidst global challenges reflects Woodside’s world-class project execution capabilities and strong relationships formed with PETROSEN, the Senegalese government, and key contractors.
