Woodside Petroleum Ltd. has entered a trio of sale and purchase agreements (SPA) to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) sourced from its Pluto facility via truck to power Western Australia’s remote mining industry.

Woodside said last week it and joint venture partner EDL had inked a 10-year SPA with miner Strandline Resources Ltd. to supply LNG to the Coburn mineral sands project during 2Q2021. Since then, it has signed a similar deal to supply Abra Mining and Industrial Corp.’s base metals project for five years, and another with Calidus Resources Ltd. for a term of seven years for the Warrawoona Gold project.

Additional terms were not disclosed. Woodside said it continues to target about 10-15% of its produced LNG to be sold on the spot market in 2021.
