Following the successful bid by Mitsui & Co. Ltd to purchase AWE this website will be updated in the near future.

Whilst the ownership of AWE has changed, the company’s commitment to be an active and responsible member of the Mid West community has not.

The Waitsia Gas Field remains a key focus for AWE with Stage 2 of the project expected to provide significant opportunities and economic benefit to the Mid West region.

The Waitsia Gas Field, when developed, will deliver substantial royalties to the Western Australian Government over the project’s lifecycle.

Meanwhile, AWE will continue producing gas from Waitsia Stage 1A and progressing the Decommissioning and Rehabilitation Project.

The northern Perth Basin is a prolific oil and gas producing area covering a large portion of the Mid West region of Western Australia. The town of Dongara, located approximately 360km north of Perth, is the regional economic hub for a number of industries, including oil and gas.
