The Wheatstone Project's LNG and domestic gas facility will be located at Ashburton North, near Onslow on the Pilbara coast of Western Australia. The project's downstream engineering, procurement, construction, management (EPCm) contractor is Bechtel - a company that has demonstrated execution experience and proven performance in Australia.
The foundation project will consist of two, 4.45 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) LNG trains plus a 200 terajoule per day domestic gas plant.
Gas and condensate will first arrive via the trunkline into the slugcatcher, where the two products will be separated. Condensate will then be stabilised (volatile gases removed) before it is stored in large tanks ready for export via oil tankers to refineries in Australia and overseas.
