Wheatstone LNG

page_header_wheatstone.jpg Wheatstone LNG is a world-class asset and will make a significant contribution to Woodside’s annual production once fully operational.

The Wheatstone Project (non-operated) comprises the Wheatstone and Iago fields, an offshore platform, a pipeline to shore and the onshore plant located near Onslow, in Western Australia's Pilbara region. The onshore plant includes a two-train 8.9 mtpa (1.16 mtpa Woodside share) LNG development and a 200 TJ-a-day domestic gas plant. LNG and condensate will be exported and domestic gas will be transported via pipeline to the Dampier Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline. 

The Julimar Project (Woodside-operated) comprises the Julimar and Brunello fields which will connect to the Wheatstone offshore platform and supply gas to the Wheatstone onshore plant.

The Wheatstone Joint Venture participants are Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (KUFPEC), Chevron (operator), PE Wheatstone and Kyushu Electric Power Company.
