According to Reuters, Peter Coleman – the Chief Executive of Woodside – has said that Chevron Corp.’s efforts to improve productivity at the Wheatstone LNG project have instilled him with confidence that the facility will start by mid-2017 and stay within its budget of $29 million.
Coleman noted that he also found comfort in the fact that Bechtel – the contractor – was bringing workers who had previously worked on start-ups of LNG plants in eastern Australia.
Coleman reportedly said to analysts on a conference call: “That gives us some confidence in both schedule and cost.”
