Reuters reports that the cargo exporting LNG from Australia’s Wheatstone project has left for Japan.
“The cargo will be delivered to one of Chevron’s foundation buyers, JERA, for delivery into Japan,” Chevron said in a statement.
Wheatstone started producing LNG earlier this month, slightly later than expected.
Wheatstone is the sixth of eight projects in a US$200 billion Australian LNG construction boom that is now in its final stretch.
“At full capacity, the Wheatstone project’s two train LNG facility is expected to contribute around 6% of the Asia Pacific region’s total future LNG production, delivering 8.9 million tpy of LNG for export to customers in Asia,” Chevron said.
“The project’s domestic gas plant also has the capacity to produce 200 TJs per day of domestic gas for the Western Australian market.”
