Wheatstone LNG

The Wheatstone Project is one of Australia’s largest resource developments, operated by Chevron. It has an onshore facility located at the Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area, 7.4 miles (12 km) west of Onslow in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The foundation project includes two liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million metric tons per annum and a domestic gas plant. At full capacity, the Wheatstone Project’s two train LNG facility will supply 8.9 million metric tons per year of LNG for export to customers in Asia. The LNG facility is located 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) west of Onslow and processes natural gas from the Chevron-operated Wheatstone and Iago fields.

Bechtel Western Australia Pty Ltd was awarded with the EPC contract for the Wheatstone LNG project. In September 2012 Bechtel awarded Van Leeuwen Pipe & Tube West Australia with the Blanket Purchase Order for the supply of carbon, low carbon, alloy, high alloy and stainless steel pipe, butt weld fittings, forged flanges and vessolets. An international dedicated project team working from the Netherlands, Singapore, Houston and Western Australia managed the project from sourcing the PFF materials from more than 25 different mills in Europe, US, South America and Korea, perform expediting, inspection, coordinating the logistics, quality assurance and final documentation. 

The material was supplied for construction to the various module yards in the Far East (China, Malaysia, Indonesia) and the Middle East as well as to the jobsite in Western Australia. Once built, these modules were shipped to the jobsite in Onslow, Western Australia.

For urgent requirements, using its global network close to the module yards (Singapore, Malaysia) Van Leeuwen was able to supply inventory material which met all of the specialized project requirements. The first delivery of material began end of 2012 with expected completion by the end of 2015.

To date, Van Leeuwen has supplied over 42,000 MT of PFF material for the Wheatstone LNG project.
