Wheatstone offshore compressed

Wheatstone LNG is a world-class asset, adding volumes to Woodside's annual production since 2017.

Operated by Chevron on behalf of the Wheatstone Joint Venture, Wheatstone LNG processes gas from the offshore Wheatstone, Iago, Julimar and Brunello gas fields, 220 km from Onslow, Western Australia. Once fully operational, Wheatstone LNG will contribute over 13 MMboe of Woodside's annual LNG and domestic gas production.

LNG Train 2 successfully commenced production in June 2018 and domestic gas production is expected to commence in 2019.
