Wheatstone and Inpex Ichthys LNG projects will have Perth PDI operating in overdrive in 2015
THE CHEVRON-OPERATED WHEATSTONE PROJECT IS ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S LARGEST RESOURCE PROJECTS. IT WILL ALSO REINFORCE DEMAND FOR ACCESS EQUIPMENT IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA, ACCORDING TO PAUL GREVILLE, WA SERVICE MANAGER TEREX AWP, WHO LEADS THE PRE DELIVERY INSPECTIONS (PDI) TEAM.
Located at Ashburton North, 12 kilometres west of Onslow in Western Australia, the Wheatstone Project is a joint venture between Australian subsidiaries Chevron, Apache Corporation, Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (KUFPEC), Shell and Kyushu Electric Power Company (Kyushu) together with PE Wheatstone Pty Ltd (part owned by TEPCO).
“The Genie PDI team in Perth will be preparing up to 130 machines and fitting customised options where required in early 2015 and plenty will be heading to Wheatstone,” said Paul. “We also support Genie operations in South Australia and Northern
Territory, so demand from the massive Inpex Ichthys LNG project will also be a major factor for our department in 2015.” Genie machines will also be prominent as Roy Hill, the iron ore mining project in the Chichester Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia kicks into gear, according to Paul.
It’s also expected that the very first Genie SX-180 boom lift, will be delivered to WA this year and Paul says the Perth PDI team is looking forward to testing the massive self-propelled boom lift.
