Woodside Sales Drop 6% After Shutdown at Pluto LNG Project
Revenue fell to $1.35 billion from $1.43 billion a year earlier, the Perth-based company said today in a statement. That compares with a median estimate of $1.38 billion from three analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.
Production was 20 million barrels of oil equivalent, compared with 20.1 million barrels a year earlier. The median estimate from three analysts was 21.2 million barrels.
Woodside earlier this month cut its full-year production forecast after the shutdown caused a temporary interruption at the A$15 billion ($13.9 billion) Pluto project in Western Australia. Output for 2013 is expected at 85 million barrels of oil equivalent to 89 million barrels, down from a previous forecast of 88 million barrels to 94 million barrels.
