Chevron’s Wheatstone LNG project located 12 kilometers west of Onslow in Western Australia started producing liquefied natural gas earlier this week. 

The project’s engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning contractor, Bechtel, on Friday released a video, showing the project’s journey from the final investment decision to first LNG.

Chevron added in its statement earlier in the week that the project will dispatch the first cargo in the coming weeks, while the second liquefaction train is set to start producing LNG between March and May next year.

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

The construction on the Wheatstone project did not go smoothly as well as the LNG project experienced delays in module deliveries. These delays had resulted in an increase of Wheatstone project costs to $34 billion as compared to $29 billion in the original 2011 estimate.

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).
