    Wheatstone is a Chevron operated natural gas field about 200km north of Onslow on the Western Australian coast. At the project’s heart is an 8.9 million metric tonne per year LNG facility supplied by multiple marine wells. The Wheatstone project is designed to supply gas to Australia, and export over 5 million tonnes per year to Asia. This makes Wheatstone a fuel source for major cities in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

  • EzyStrut’s Role

    Since March 2012, at the early design stages of the project, EzyStrut worked with Bechtel (EPCM Contractor) to design and test a cable support system that set a new standard in load over extended spans and corrosion resistance, that to date is unsurpassed.

    Over 84km of Stainless Steel Grade 316 cable ladder was supplied, all subject to independent testing to meet the project’s performance requirements.

  • Project Management

    A dedicated Project Manager (PM) was assigned to the project and was solely in charge of coordinating the seamless supply chain starting from raw material procurement all the way up to delivery of the final product.

    The PM also ensured that any likely capacity constraints were addressed early, and created increased production capacity strategies to help keep the project on schedule.

    Quality compliance and checks was one of the key hold points in the project and external inspectors employed by the end client frequently visited EzyStrut’s manufacturing facilities to approve products before despatch. Complete material traceability was also provided.

    Logistics management was efficiently handled with multiple 40’ containers despatching per week to three different countries along with local despatch to WA. The PM proactively worked with the client to ensure that all sites received the materials in full as per individual schedules.
