The Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project has successfully completed one of the largest offshore platform installations in the Chevron’s history, marking a major milestone for the project.

The project is now nearly 60 per cent complete, with the platform in place, approximately 225 km from Ashburton North, Western Australia.

Subsea equipment, including wellheads and subsea trees, is currently being delivered and installed offshore.

At the LNG plant site, equipment and modules continue to be delivered and installed.

The roofs of both LNG tanks have now been raised, with construction of the two condensate storage tanks underway.

First LNG is expected at the Wheatstone Project in 2016, which is approximately 55 per cent complete, via a 250 MMcf/d onshore domestic gas plant at Ashburton North, WA.

The project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (64.14 per cent), Apache Energy (13 per cent), Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company KUFPEC (13.4 per cent) and Kyushu Electric Power Company (1.46 per cent), together with PE Wheatstone Pty Ltd (part owned by Tokyo Electric Power Company, 8 per cent).
