Chevron’s Wheatstone nearing halfway mark

January 8, 2015

 

Chevron’s Wheatstone is about to hit the halfway mark. According to the company's 3Q report, the Australian mega-project is 49% complete.

Wheatstone is located 12km west of Onslow on the Pilbara coast of Western Australia.

Key activities include completion, load out, transport and installation of the steel gravity structure, the submerged foundation of the Wheatstone Processing Platform. The project is set for first gas in late 2016.

Wheatstone is a natural gas development consisting of two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 MTPA plus a 200 terajoules per day domestic gas plant. The Wheatstone LNG will be offloaded via a 1.2km loading jetty for transport to international markets. The domestic gas will be piped to the Western Australian mainland.

Chevron’s Wheatstone project will become Australia’s first third-party natural gas hub. Offshore facilities include Australia’s largest offshore gas processing platform, with a 225km trunkline connecting it to the onshore plant.
