“This award allows us to continue our long standing relationship with Technip in providing unique subsea construction support solutions. I would like to sincerely thank Technip again for the confidence placed in Jumbo and we are very much looking forward to working together towards a successful project completion.”

Wheatstone Project

The Chevron operated Wheatstone Field Development is located in Western Australia and situated 120 Nm North of Onslow.  The water depth at site ranges from 73m to 240m. Wheatstone will be developed using a subsea gas gathering system that is tied back to the recently installed Wheatstone Platform. Gas will be exported from the platform to the onshore LNG facility through a dedicated trunkline.  First gas production/LNG start-up is expected in 2015.
