The Chevron operated Wheatstone LNG and domestic gas plant FEED work scope has been awarded to Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals, Inc. The project is a grass-roots development at a green field site near Onslow, on the Pilbara Coast in Western Australia. The project will consist of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) production trains, a domestic gas (DOMGAS) processing plant, and condensate processing facilities, with supporting utilities, product storage, product loading facility (PLF), material offloading facility (MOF) and other infrastructure.
The feed gas will be coming from gas fields located off the Northwest Coast of Western Australia in the Carnarvon Basin. Condensate will also be produced. The gas supply will be processed on the Processing Platform (PP) and delivered to landfall at the Ashburton North site via a subsea pipeline.
The Wheatstone Project entered the front-end engineering and design phase in July 2009 and expects to make a final investment decision in 2011. Chevron is the operator and holds an approximate 75 percent interest in the project.
