The Wheatstone Project is a world-class asset, adding volumes to Woodside's annual production since 2017.
Operated by Chevron on behalf of the Wheatstone Joint Venture, the Wheatstone Project processes gas from the offshore Wheatstone, Iago, Julimar and Brunello gas fields.
The Wheatstone Project consists of an offshore platform located 220 km from Onslow, Western Australia, connected by a trunkline to an onshore plant consisting of two LNG trains, a domestic gas plant and associated infrastructure.
The fully operational Wheatstone Project will contribute over 13 MMboe of Woodside's annual LNG and domestic gas production.
LNG Train 1 and Train 2 successfully commenced production in October 2017 and June 2018 respectively and commercial production of domestic gas commenced in March 2019.

Wheatstone LNG processes gas from two separate upstream developments, the Wheatstone Project (80%) and the Julimar Development Project (20%).
