Train 2 at Wheatstone LNG facility in Australia begins operation

Production has begun at the second train at the Wheatstone LNG onshore facility in western Australia, according to a June 15 news release.

The Wheatstone facility houses two liquefaction trains capable of producing 8.9 million tonnes a year. LNG production at the Wheatstone LNG export terminal began in October 2017.

Wheatstone hopes to commission the domestic gas plant during the second half of this year.

Wheatstone LNG is a joint venture of Chevron Corp. Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company K.S.C., Woodside Petroleum Ltd. and Kyushu Electric Power Company, Inc. together with PE Wheatstone Pty Ltd, part owned by JERA Co., Inc.

Australia is now the second-largest LNG exporter in the world and is expected to overtake Qatar by 2019.
