Introduction to Woodside Energy Group Ltd (ASX: WDS)

Woodside Energy Group Ltd holds a prominent position in the oil and gas sector, making its share prices a significant indicator in the market. The current article delves into the factors influencing the recent downturn in Woodside's shares.

Current Performance of Woodside Energy Group Ltd

The company's share price, diverging from the benchmark index, suggests underlying issues impacting its market performance. This deviation warrants a closer examination of the reasons behind Woodside's lagging share prices.

Reasons Behind Woodside's Lagging Share Price

The unexpected drop in oil prices overnight has placed pressure on Woodside's shares. Brent crude oil's significant tumble to a low of US$78.41 per barrel, despite a partial recovery to US$81.96 per barrel, is a primary contributor to the downward trajectory of Woodside's share price.

Factors Influencing Oil Prices and Share Performance

The delay in the scheduled OPEC+ meeting until 30th November has stirred concerns within the oil market. The disagreement among OPEC+ members, particularly regarding production cuts, is contributing to market uncertainty, potentially leading to further declines in oil prices.


The current downturn in Woodside's share price is closely tied to the unexpected overnight drop in oil prices, influenced by the delay in the OPEC+ meeting and conflicting viewpoints among member nations. The company's future performance will be significantly impacted by the resolution of these factors.
