CB&I wins LNG award in Australia for Wheatstone project

Offshore staff

THE WOODLANDS, TexasCB&I has been awarded a contract by Bechtel valued in excess of $625 million (A$690 million) to provide structural, mechanical, and piping construction work for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone project onshore at Ashburton North in Western Australia.

Gas for the onshore LNG trains will come from the Wheatstone and Iago fields offshore in 330 ft (101 m) and 850 ft (259 m) of water, respectively. Subsea gas gathering systems will transport production to the processing platform where gas and condensate will be dehydrated, dewatered, compressed, and exported through a 200-km (124-mi) export pipeline to the onshore gas plant.

The Wheatstone project is one of Australia's largest resource projects. It is a joint venture between Australian subsidiaries of Chevron, Apache Corp., Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Co. (KUFPEC), Shell, and Kyushu Electric Power Co. (Kyushu) together with PE Wheatstone Pty. Ltd. (partly owned by TEPCO).
