Sheffield Resources has entered into a 15-year agreement with Woodside for the supply and delivery of 1,950 terajoules per annum of LNG to the Thunderbird Mineral Sands Project in the Kimberley region of 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 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.
