ACCC probes Woodside’s Apache deal

The consumer watchdog is probing Woodside Petroleum's $US2.75 billion purchase of oil and gas assets from US energy company Apache, over concerns the deal could affect the supply of wholesale gas in the WA market and lead to higher gas prices.

Woodside announced in December its purchase of Apache Corporation's stakes in three projects, including the Chevron-operated Wheatstone venture, which is currently under construction near Onslow.

The Wheatstone project is primarily focused on production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for export markets, but it will also become a supplier of domestic gas for local industy.
