Woodside’s Australian workers hit with job cut news


The cuts come weeks after Australia’s largest oil and gas company reorganised its top management with its Australian and Houston-based International regions reporting to different operating officers.

Woodside had 4667 employees across the world at the end of 2023, according to it annual report, almost 1000 more than two years ago before it bought BHP’s petroleum division. Australia was home to 3563 staff and 1104 worked overseas, predominantly in the United States.

The company was asked how many employees would lose their jobs and if the International region would also suffer cuts, but it did not provide answers.

A Woodside spokeswoman said the company routinely reviews its workforce needs “to ensure alignment with business activities and priorities, while ensuring safe and reliable operations.”
