Woodside reports $720 million non-cash impairment

Woodside has announced that its financial statements for the full-year ended 31 December 2019 will recognise a non-cash impairment of $720 million (after tax) in relation to the Kitimat assets in Western Canada.

According to the statement, the full 2019 financial statements will be released on 13 February 2020.

Kitimat remains a world-class project, and Woodside will continue to actively evaluate opportunities for future development, including optimisation of gas supply into processing facilities. However, the company claims that the impairment reflects increased uncertainty, particularly in the timing of the development of the upstream Liard resource, following sustained depressed gas market conditions in Western Canada.

Calculation of the 2019 final dividend, which will also be announced on 13 February, will reportedly exclude the impact of this impairment on net profit after tax.
