Woodside has one of the largest offshore petroleum acreage holdings in Myanmar.

Since 2015, we have safely completed three drilling campaigns, making gas discoveries in each campaign. In 2018, we drilled three wells, which included a successful appraisal of the Shwe Yee Htun field in Block A-6 and a gas discovery at Aung Siddhi-1 in Block AD-1. 

Following successful completion of the Shwe Yee Htun-2 appraisal well, and agreement with the Government of Myanmar in late 2019, Woodside and A-6 Joint Venture (JV) are progressing development planning for Block A-6.

Woodside is planning for a fourth drilling campaign offshore Myanmar commencing in late 2020 and continuing into 2021.

A-6 Development momentum builds

“We appreciate the Government of Myanmar’s ongoing support and willingness to work with the joint venture to ensure the A-6 Development is progressed in a timely manner,” said our EVP Developments, Meg O'Neill.
