Wheatstone Project’s journey to LNG production

wheatstone project

The short film presents a short overview of the Australian Wheatstone project up to September 2017. The Wheatstone gas field was discovered in 2004, while the final investment decision was made in September 2011, and construction began in December 2011.

The Wheatstone Project is one of Australia’s largest resource developments, with an onshore facility located at the Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area, 7.4 miles (12 km) west of Onslow in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The foundation project includes two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million metric tons per annum and a domestic gas plant.

The Wheatstone platform is the largest offshore gas-processing platform ever installed in Australia, with a topside weight of about 37,000 metric tons.

In conjunction with the Gorgon Project, Wheatstone aims to reinforce Australia’s position as a leading natural gas supplier and LNG operator in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as providing significant economic benefits.

The project is operated by Chevron Australia Pty. Ltd., owning 72%, while it is co-owned by Royal Dutch Shell with 6.4%, Woodside with  13%, KUFPEC Australia (Julimar) Pty. Ltd., a subsidiary of the Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Co., with 7%, and Kyushu Electric Power Co. with 1.6%.
