Chevron still expects to ship first Wheatstone LNG cargo in 2016 (Video)

Oil and gas giant Chevron is still targeting first LNG cargo from its US$29 billion Wheatstone project in Australia by the end of 2016.

However, the LNG project located 12 kilometers west of Onslow in Western Australia’s Pilbara region could be delayed because of the late delivery of modules.

Work to mitigate Wheatstone’s schedule pressures from previous delays and module delivery continues,” Chevron said in the latest project update.

According to the update, 17 of the 24 modules required for first LNG have been delivered and all refrigeration compressors and gas turbine generators have been installed.

Installation of all pipe racks and electrical switchgear buildings on the product loading facility is now complete as is startup of the power systems and the plant operations center.

As per the subsea part of the project, all infrastructure and over 100 kilometers of flow lines have been installed. Hook up and commissioning of the offshore platform continues on plan, Chevron said.

All nine wells are drilled to the top of the reservoir with four of nine wells now completed and subsea trees installed.

The Wheatstone project will consist of two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million metric tons per annum and a domestic gas plant.

The LNG project is a joint venture between Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (64.14 percent), Kufpec (13.4 percent), Woodside (13 percent), and Kyushu Electric (1.46 percent), together with PE Wheatstone, part owned by Tepco (8 percent).
