WATCH: Wheatstone Project progresses

Activities supporting the delivery of first LNG in mid-2017 continue offshore and at the LNG plant site on the Chevron-operated project.

The Wheatstone drilling campaign is now complete, with all nine development well flowbacks successful.

Offshore at the Wheatstone platform, hook-up and commissioning is progressing, and the accommodation support vessel has demobilised.

At the plant site, the export jetty and LNG loading platform are complete, and all LNG Train 1 modules are on site with structural, mechanical and piping works continuing.

Delivery of Train 2 modules continues, with 21 of 24 modules now on site.

The LNG storage tanks are nearing completion with hydro-testing activities complete.

The operations centre facilities are complete and workforce mobilised.

At the laboratory and maintenance workshop, commissioning and handover activities are underway.

Watch the video below to see how far the project has progressed.

Chevron plans to produce 8.9 MMt/a of LNG through two trains to be supplied by permits WA-235-P and WA-17-R, located in the Wheatstone field, offshore Western Australia.

The field is situated 145 km off the Pilbara coast, approximately 100 km north of Barrow Island and 225 km north of Onslow, with the two permits estimated to contain 4.5 Tcf of gas.

Joint venture interests in the project include Chevron (operator, 64.14 per cent), Woodside Petroleum (13 per cent), KUFPEC (13.4 per cent), PE Wheatstone (partly-owned by TEPCO, 8 per cent) and Kyushu Electric Power Company (1.46 per cent).
