Sheffield Signs LNG Supply Deal with Woodside

Source: 1/22/2019, Location: Not categorized

Sheffield Resources Limited has secured a 15-year agreement (Agreement) with Woodside Energy Limited (Woodside) and Energy Developments Pty Ltd (EDL) for the supply and delivery of 1,950 terajoules per annum of liquified natural gas (LNG) to the Thunderbird Mineral Sands Project (Thunderbird) in northern Western Australia.

LNG will be supplied from Woodside’s Pluto LNG Truck Loading Facility near Karratha in Western Australia and transported to Thunderbird’s LNG storage facility by a newly formed joint venture between Woodside and EDL. The joint venture will own and operate a purpose-built road tanker fleet to safely and reliably deliver the LNG to Thunderbird, as is customary with other gas logistic arrangements in place for the towns of Broome, Derby and other communities in the Kimberley. The advantage of using LNG at Thunderbird is three-fold, providing Sheffield with a low cost, low emission fuel source that is ideally suited to the ilmenite low temperature roast (LTR) process proposed for the Thunderbird processing plant.

As previously announced on 19 September 2018, Sheffield has secured infrastructure funding support from the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF). Part of the $95 million financing package will be allocated to the proposed Thunderbird LNG storage and power station facilities, which will be constructed and operated under separate agreement with third parties. This arrangement will enable Sheffield to capture long-term gas supply cost savings relative to the Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) published in March 2017. The BFS assumed an outsourced LNG storage and power station facility model on a Build Own and Operate (BOO) basis. The NAIF funding arrangements enable in-sourcing of LNG storage and power station facilities to take place, providing significant reduction in operating costs compared to BFS assumptions.

The Agreement is subject to a number of customary conditions precedent, including the Company making a final investment decision toward the development of Thunderbird.

Sheffield Resources Managing Director, Mr Bruce McFadzean said, “We are extremely pleased with the level of support shown by Woodside and EDL in delivering a low cost, long-term energy solution for Thunderbird. The project is now fully permitted and construction ready, with offtake and financing agreements in place. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Woodside and EDL as we move toward development during 2019.”
