Chevron, Chubu Electric sign Wheatstone LNG agreements

Chevron Corp. has signed a binding long-term sales and purchase agreement with Chubu Electric Power Co. for Chubu to take 1 million tonnes/year of LNG from the Wheatstone project off Western Australia. The uptake will be for 20 years.

Chubu is already a partner and customer for Chevron’s Gorgon LNG project on Barrow Island.

The Wheatstone project is being built at Ashburton North, 12 km west of Onslow in Western Australia. It will comprise two LNG trains with a combine capacity of 8.9 million tpy as well as a gas plant.

More than 80% of Chevron’s equity in Wheatstone LNG has now been contracted under long-term agreements with customers in Asia.

The project is a joint venture of Chevron 64.14%, Apache Energy 13%, Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Co. 7%, Royal Dutch Shell PLC 6.4%, Kyushu Electric Power Co. 1.46%, and Tokyo Electric Power Co. 8%.

The project is being supplied with gas from Wheatstone and Iago fields.
