Australian Resources and Energy Group AMMA has congratulated experienced energy industry professional Meg O’Neill for her appointment to Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Woodside.
“Meg is an outstanding choice to lead Woodside – a pioneer of the LNG industry in Australia which has an incredibly exciting future following the historic deal to acquire BHP’s oil and gas assets,” AMMA Chief Executive Steve Knott AM said.
“AMMA has been fortunate to have Meg as a member of the AMMA Board since 2019, including as Vice President from August 2020.
“Meg’s international experience and deep understanding of the industry is critical as Australia looks to secure new multi-billion-dollar investment projects which create jobs and national economic benefits for decades.
“Meg is an outstanding intellect with a passion for our industry. She has exceptional stakeholder skills and is an absolute professional to work with.”
Ms O’Neill has three decades’ experience working in the global oil and gas industry and joined Woodside as Chief Operations Officer in May 2018.
She will lead Woodside – already an iconic Australian company – following its historic acquisition of BHP’s petroleum division, propelling Woodside to a top 10 global energy company.
“Meg’s proven leadership capabilities will be crucial to drive the transformation period and the many future opportunities this acquisition will create,” Mr Knott said.
