Woodside Energy continues to work closely with its contractors to provide opportunities for Traditional Owner/Custodian businesses.

In 2022, Woodside signed a five-year contract with NYFL Tutt Bryant, a joint venture between NYFL and Tutt Bryant, to supply general rental equipment to its onshore and offshore Australian operations. By engaging a locally based Traditional Owner joint venture, Woodside has secured the delivery of an important service while also contributing to the local economy. This supports the growth of NYFL Tutt Bryant as a supplier of general hire equipment services and increases their capacity to deliver services to other industries across the Pilbara.

A five-year contract was also awarded to Pilbara-based Traditional Owner business Yurra to supply scaffolding materials, deliver off-site fabrication and site-based implementation services to its onshore operations. Yurra is the outcome of the successful collaboration between the Yindjibarndi People and ALM Landscaping, a construction business established in Port Hedland in 2010. The contract is Woodside’s largest Traditional Owner direct award to date.

Cedrent Enterprises is a majority Traditional Owner business (Yindjibarndi), an independent franchisee of the enterprise Rent-ACar. Cedrent opened a Karratha Airport location in 2021 and has since grown its Pilbara fleet from 50 to over 350 vehicles, with a plan to further grow the fleet to more than 600 by the end of 2023. Woodside will be utilising their services in Karratha with an initial two-year agreement in place.
