Perth students get rare gas insight at Wheatstone
Natural gas is a big part of modern life, providing us with energy, fuel and all sorts of materials. But have you ever wondered how it gets from A to B?
Students of Darling Range Sports College had the chance to find out the answer when they won a trip to Wheatstone, one of the country’s largest natural gas facilities.
Organised as part of the 2021 Resources Technology Showcase, the students and their teachers got a rare insight into the inner workings of the Chevron-operated plant.
Wheatstone, located about 12 kilometers to the west of the coastal town of Onslow in Western Australia’s Pilbara region, is a massive project expected to deliver more than $180 billion to the Australian economy by 2040.
“This was really a once in a lifetime experience and will leave a lasting impression,” said science teacher Andrew Schembri.
“The visit showcased the many and diverse opportunities available within the industry, from STEM-related careers to site services or corporate roles.
