Chevron Australia has awarded a $235 million (Aus.) construction management contract for the Wheatstone LNG project to WorleyParsons.
The work will be overseen by personnel in Perth, Houston, and onsite at the Ashburton North plant area as well as selected fabrication yards throughout Asia.
It is the first major contract for Wheatstone since Chevron made its final investment decision last month.
The 8.9 million tonne/year, 2-train LNG project plus domestic gas plant is expected to generate $20 billion (Aus.) in revenues for the government and provide an estimated $17 billion (Aus.) to Australian businesses and services over the project life.
Gas feed will be from the Wheatstone, Iago, Julimar, and Brunello fields.
