SYDNEY -- Woodside Petroleum aims to start operating what it says will be one of the world's largest hydrogen production facilities as early as 2027, CEO Meg O'Neill told Nikkei, as Australia's biggest energy group seeks growth in green power sources.

With nations and companies setting goals of becoming carbon neutral in the coming decades, Woodside plans to build a new hydrogen and ammonia-producing facility near Perth with a daily capacity of up to 1,500 tons.
