The Trion field development plan (FDP) has been approved by the Mexican regulator, Comision Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH).

Woodside’s final investment decision (FID) to develop the Trion resource was subject to Trion joint venture approval and regulatory approval of the FDP. Both of these conditions have now been met.

Woodside CEO, Meg O’Neill, welcomed the approval of the FDP as she said, “This milestone allows us to fully progress into execution phase activities with our contractors. We look forward to working with PEMEX and our other stakeholders in Mexico to deliver this important project.”

Following the approval of the FDP, Woodside has booked Proved (1P) Undeveloped Reserves of 324.7 mmboe gross (194.8 mmboe Woodside share) and Proved plus Probable (2P) Undeveloped Reserves of 478.7 mmboe gross (287.2 mmboe Woodside share).

The project execution phase activities are progressing and Woodside has executed key contracts relating to the development including: The floating production unit (FPU) engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with HD Hyundai Heavy Industries, the rig contract with Transocean, the FPU and floating storage offloading (FSO) installation contract with SBM Offshore and the subsea trees contract with OneSubsea UK.

First oil is targeted for 2028. Woodside is operator of the Trion development with a 60% participating interest and PEMEX Exploración y Producción (PEMEX) holds the remaining 40%.
