Petrofac provides professional consultancy services to the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project as an embedded extension to the project’s downstream Operations team. This includes review and assurance capabilities in respect of operability and maintainability of facility design during the design phase. It also provides advisors to support commissioning and startup activities at module fabrication sites and the LNG facility.

In addition, Petrofac provides technical resources to develop training materials, operations manuals and procedures necessary to operate and maintain the LNG facility. Deliverables include field validated operations and maintenance manuals and procedures, personnel competency framework, OTS’ all related training materials, CBT and delivery resources developed specifically for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility.
