|About: Woodside Petroleum Ltd. ADR (WOPEY)|By:, SA News Editor

Woodside Energy's (WOPEY.PK, WOPEF.PK) deal to take a 30% stake in Noble's (NBL -2.1%) Leviathan field off the Israeli coast is on the verge of collapse due to NBL's decision to build a pipeline to Turkey instead of developing an LNG plant, as well as the decreased amount of Leviathan gas that will be available for export, Globes reports.

Shares also were downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BAML.
