Chevron and TEPCO sign equity and LNG sales agreements

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA - Chevron Corporation announced that its Australian subsidiaries have signed additional binding agreements with Tokyo Electric Power Company for liquefied natural gas (LNG) offtake and equity interests in the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project.
Under the agreements, TEPCO will purchase an additional 0.4 million tons per year (tpy) of LNG from the Wheatstone Project for up to 20 years.

In addition TEPCO, through a related company, will acquire from Chevron a 10% participating interest in the Wheatstone field licenses and an 8% interest in the Wheatstone natural gas processing facilities.

These agreements, and the previously announced sales and purchase agreement, increases TEPCO s total Wheatstone LNG offtake to 4.2 million tpy.

Joe Geagea, president, Chevron Gas and Midstream, welcomed TEPCO’s further investment in the Wheatstone Project. “TEPCO is one of the world s leading LNG customers and we are pleased to expand the strong partnership between our two companies.”

Roy Krzywosinski, managing director, Chevron Australia, said, “More than
80% of Chevron' s equity LNG from Wheatstone is covered under long-term off-take agreements with customers in Asia. These agreements continue to demonstrate Wheatstone is well-placed geographically to meet the Asia Pacific region s demand for a safe, reliable and cleaner-burning source of energy.”

The Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project will become one of Australia' s largest resource projects. Located at Ashburton North, 7.5 miles (12 km) west of Onslow in Western Australia, the foundation phase of the project will consist of two liquefied natural gas trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tpy and a domestic gas plant.
