Senegal's new president, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, intends to apply pressure on Woodside's Sangomar Gas Project, prompting concerns for the $US5 billion ($7.59 billion) investment.

Despite potential policy revisions affecting the project, Woodside expressed readiness to collaborate with the new government.

Faye's plans to review oil and gas contracts could impact projects like BP's Grand-Tortue Ahmeyim.

Woodside, holding 82% of Sangomar, aims to work with Senegal to achieve energy goals. Construction progress stands at 93%, with economic growth forecasts tied to oil and gas developments.
