Environmental Stewardship is a key element to how we do business. It is part of The Chevron Way values and underpins all of our operations, worldwide, including our development of the Wheatstone Project.
Protecting People and the Environment is the right thing to do. It's critical to our success in a world where energy sources must be developed in a safe and environmentally responsible way.
We are working with the local community and other stakeholders to ensure that the project is developed in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
The Wheatstone Project has undergone a rigorous and thorough environmental assessment which included extensive research, engagement with communities and government agencies, and contributions from independent experts.
As part of the Commonwealth and Western Australian government's environmental regulatory approvals for the Wheatstone Project, Chevron is required to meet a range of stringent environmental conditions. Our $13 million environmental offsets package includes $3.5 million over four years to improve management of critical habitats for humpback whales, dugongs and snubfin dolphins in Pilbara waters.
Since 2009, our team of environmental specialists has surveyed marine habitats in the Onslow and Ashburton Region, gathering important information about the baseline state of these ecosystems.
Monitoring the marine and land environments during the construction of the Wheatstone Project and into operations, allows us to detect change, and proactively manage activities to conserve marine habitats.
