The Chevron-led Wheatstone LNG project in Australia is expected to produce its first cargo of the chilled fuel next month, according to Woodside’s chief executive Peter Coleman.

“We’re targeting first cargo in September,” Coleman told analysts on Wednesday during the company’s first-half results conference call.

The liquefaction facility’s first train is starting up and is currently in the final stages of commissioning.

The second train at Wheatstone is expected to start production between March and May next year, Coleman said during the call.

At full capacity, the two liquefaction trains will be producing 8.9 million tons per annum of LNG.

Wheatstone LNG is a joint venture between Australian units of Chevron (64.14 percent), Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (13.4 percent), Woodside (13 percent), and Kyushu Electric Power Company (1.46 percent), together with PE Wheatstone, part owned by JERA (8 percent).
