Chevron has announced that its Wheatstone Project has continued to gain momentum in H1 2014. The project remains on track for first gas in late 2016.
The Wheatstone project contains two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tpy, as well as a 200 TJ/d domestic gas plant, located 12 km west of Onslow on the Pilbara coast of Western Australia.
The Wheatstone Project concept takes a long-term approach to Australia’s LNG sector, and will become Australia’s first third-party natural gas hub. Offshore facilities include Australia’s largest offshore gas processing platform, with a 225 km trunkline connecting it to the onshore plant.
Wheatstone LNG will be offloaded via a 1.2 km loading jetty for transport to international markets. The domestic gas will be piped to the Western Australian mainland.
