First gas from Chevron's Wheatstone departing the Onslow operation.

First Wheatstone gas shipped

One of Western Australia's largest resources projects has achieved a major milestone, with the first shipment of LNG from Chevron's Wheatstone project departing to Japan today.

The project, which has been estimated to cost at least $US34 billion, will be Chevron's second major LNG operation in Western Australia, after the Gorgon LNG project commenced production in 2016.

Wheatstone, which is based near Onslow, has a production capacity of 8.9 million tonnes of LNG per annum through two processing trains.
