Chevron Awards Gas Contracts for Wheatstone LNG
03 December 2009
US energy major Chevron Corp (CVXN) has awarded early engineering upstream contracts for its proposed Wheatstone liquefied natural gas (LNG) project to two companies, it said on Thursday.
Chevron awarded the front-end engineering and design contracts for the offshore portion of Wheatstone to Intecsea Pty Ltd, which will design the subsea gas gathering options, and Technip Oceania Pty Ltd, a unit of French oil services group Technip SA (TECF.PA), to design the production platform.
Chevron did not provide a value of the contracts. It said the upstream scope included subsea gas gathering for the Wheatstone and Iago fields, an offshore production platform and a 200 km pipeline linking the platform to the onshore gas liquefaction plant.
