Woodside still up
8.9 WOODSIDE Petroleum shares have climbed despite the energy heavyweight flagging that its production this year is likely to be at the lower end of its previous forecast. The oil and gas company said it was “extending” turnaround activity at its Pluto liquefied natural gas plant, off the coast of Western Australia. After the delays, production was expected to resume at the plant by the end of this month. The company said it had bought supplies from other companies to meet obligations to customers. Woodside shares climbed 1.5 per cent to $35.15 yesterday. They are up 12.2 per cent so far this year.
