Wheatstone

page_header_wheatstone.jpg The Wheatstone Project is a world-class asset delivering near-term production to Woodside's expanding LNG portfolio.

In April 2015, Woodside acquired a 13% interest in the Wheatstone Project and a 65% interest in the Julimar Project.

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 Wheatstone Project is targeting first LNG in mid-20171.

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 Julimar Project remains on target to achieve ready for start-up in 2H 2016.

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