- Government working with industry to secure gas supply
- Actions prompted by gas supply outage
- Supply remains stable after Government, industry response
The State Government is working to secure WA’s gas supply following an outage at Chevron’s Wheatstone domestic gas plant near Onslow.
The plant experienced a technical failure on the evening of Thursday, January 5, which resulted in gas production ceasing.
The source of the failure has been identified and work is underway to begin a staged restart of the operation from Sunday, January 8.
The incident follows reduced supply from the Santos-operated John Brookes facility at Varanus Island and Devil Creek facility following recent interruptions.
The State Government has worked with industry, including gas producers and large gas users, to ensure supply into the Dampier to Bunbury Gas Pipeline continues to meet demand.
