Onslow is a coastal town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 1,386 kilometres (861 mi) north of Perth. Onslow is a beautiful coastal town with a nice, sunny climate, particularly April-September. It is the oldest town in the Ashburton Shire, with a colourful history including pearl lugging and devastation by cyclone and Japanese bombing in World War II. Onslow will appeal to those with an avid interest in fishing, history and nature.
In recent years the Onslow has welcomed the Wheatstone Project, which has become one of Australia’s largest resource projects – providing greater security of supply and significant economic benefits such as employment, government revenue and local business opportunities.
In conjunction with the Gorgon Project, it reinforces the Chevron Australia position as a leading natural gas supplier and liquefied natural gas (LNG) operator in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Wheatstone Project will include an onshore facility located at Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area (ANSIA), 12 kilometres west of Onslow in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The foundation project includes two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) and a domestic gas plant.
