Economic Development Partnerships

Partnering for Economic Development

We are committed to working with local businesses to help build local capacity and capability.

Chevron Australia recognises that contributing to the economy beyond our direct operations improves the quality of life for communities where we operate. We're committed to helping make local businesses competitive and meet industry and our own contracting standards.

Supporting job readiness and local entrepreneurial skills is highly valued. New and diverse businesses that provide local goods and services to the community are encouraged. We've developed a range of partnerships with organisations that have the expertise and technical knowledge to help deliver these outcomes.

Our Economic Development Partnerships include:

West Pilbara Business Support Program  

Working in partnership, the Business Centre Pilbara, Many Rivers and RSM help establish, support and grow successful local businesses. This kind of collaboration concept is an Australian first.

Onslow Chamber of Commerce and Industry  

The Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project has partnered with the local chamber since 2013 to help support the growth and delivery of the CCI services and programs in Onslow.

Industry Facilitation and Support Program  

We co-fund the Department of Commerce's Industry Facilitation Program in Onslow and the broader West Pilbara area to help local businesses expand their services and pursue new opportunities.
