Chevron Australia Pty Ltd (Chevron) is the nominated titleholder to undertake eligible voluntary actions for the Wheatstone Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Project. The Wheatstone Project Installation Environment Plan – Topsides Installation and Hookup and Commissioning comprises of:
Hookup of Topsides
Commissioning of Topsides
Commissioning and Operations of the Living Quarters
Operation of the Accommodation Support Vessel
The activities will be performed at the location of the Wheatstone Platform (WP). The WP is located at 330 860 E and 7 795 520 N (UTM Zone 50). These coordinates are based on the Geodetic Datum of Australia (GDA94).
The topsides installation and HUC activities are planned to commence in Quarter 1 2015 and the indicative durations of the major activities are as follows:
Topsides installation (including the setting of the anchor system and floatover) is estimated to take approximately one month
Hook up of topsides to the SGS and subsequent commissioning of the topsides will follow installation and is estimated to take approximately six months
The ASV will be in operation during the HUC scope and is expected to be in place and operating for approximately six months until such time that the PLQ is commissioned
The standby period will commence following HUC and continue until the commencement of operations, however the duration of the standby period is dependent on the readiness of both the offshore and onshore operations scopes.
The timing of activities described in this plan is indicative, and subject to potential delays caused by weather events, vessel availability and other unforeseen factors.
