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.

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.
