Woodside faces Leviathan doubts

Woodside's partner in the giant Israeli oilfield has raised doubts about field's gas exports.

Woodside Petroleum Ltd's potential operating partner in a $US2.2 billion ($A2.34 billion) deal to enter Israel's offshore Leviathan gas field, Noble Energy, says LNG exports are not as appealing as they once were, raising further questions over whether Woodside will have to pay more to enter the giant oilfield.

Last December, Perth-based Woodside signed a non-binding deal to enter the undeveloped Leviathan field and operate and develop an LNG plant.
