Wheatstone Boosts Domestic Gas Supply in Western Australia

Chevron Australia has announced the commencement of domestic gas deliveries from the Chevron-operated Wheatstone natural gas facility near Onslow, Western Australia.

With capacity to supply 200 terajoules of natural gas per day (Tj/d), Wheatstone domestic gas will supply local households and businesses through contracts with WA customers for decades to come.

Chevron Australia managing director Al Williams said Chevron is proud to be a leading and growing domestic gas supplier to Australia.

'Our investment in the Gorgon and Wheatstone natural gas facilities are a major contributor to Australia now being one of the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) suppliers and has enabled the development of a secure domestic gas supply for the State’s industrial, commercial and household users.'

'As a reliable and cost-effective way to generate electricity, cleaner- burning natural gas is a vital energy source for current and future energy needs. Importantly for WA, domestic gas will power local jobs, local industry, local communities and provide government revenues for decades to come,' Williams said.

At full capacity, the Chevron-operated Gorgon and Wheatstone natural gas facilities will be able to produce 500 terajoules per day of domestic gas for the WA market – enough to generate electricity for 4.3 million households.

The high penetration of natural gas in WA’s electrical power generation is the reason WA’s electricity generation has some of the lowest greenhouse gas emissions intensity in Australia, around 15 percent below the national average.
