2 Chevron Australia Part of Australia Since the Early 1950s The word Frontier is a metaphor for Chevron s position in Australia and reflects our people, partnerships and performance as we move our mega-projects forward. We re entering a new era of energy in Australia, embracing new frontiers in deepwater operations, with the development of our two LNG and domestic gas mega-projects Gorgon and Wheatstone. It s our Frontier approach to all we do that will help secure energy supplies and boost the Australian economy for generations to come. For us, it s all about Providing Energy for Human Progress. chevronaustralia.com Frontier Issue Seven Winter 2011 Editorial Director Nicole Hodgson Editor Valma Ozich Graphic Designer Evan Martin Chevron's one of the world's leading integrated energy companies. With the ingenuity and commitment of more than 2,000 people, Chevron Australia not only leads the development of the Gorgon and Wheatstone natural gas projects, but manages its equal one-sixth interest in the North West Shelf Venture and operates Australia's largest onshore oil field on Barrow Island and the Thevenard Island oilfields. We're also a participant in the Browse liquefied natural gas development. Significantly, Chevron's Global Technology Centre is based in Perth providing technology support and solutions for its operations throughout the world. But no matter what the project or focus area, there is one constant thread to everything we do our commitment to working The Chevron Way; to be the global energy company most admired for its people, partnership and performance. Space Exploration Technology to Improve Energy Production What do exploring for energy and exploring for life on Mars have in common? Both need advanced technology to provide information and insight. And now, thanks to a new agreement just signed between Chevron and NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL), the experts who developed technology for interplanetary missions will develop a range of solutions to better enable the production and recovery of energy resources. Chevron's Corporate Vice President and Chief Technology Officer John McDonald said the alliance was an opportunity to bridge public- and private-sector technology and research to discover oil and natural gas volumes that are found in deep remote reservoirs. "NASA and JPL are highly acclaimed, and Chevron is proud to collaborate with them to unlock new energy potential, Mr McDonald said. In many ways, the research is akin to deep space exploration, making the missions of our two organisations highly complementary. "We are proud that the same pool of talent that sends rovers to Mars, explores our universe and studies Earth's environment will help contribute advanced technology towards our energy future here on Earth. Mr McDonald said that the technology developed by JPL for interplanetary missions is also useful for gaining a better understanding of the geology of Earth. For example, JPL developed technology that enables electronic communication over millions of miles in outer space. That same technology may have application in deepwater energy operations, which extend thousands of metres below the surface of the ocean and encounter extreme pressures and temperatures. 2 Frontier Magazine

4 Chevron Australia Message From the MD The decisions we all make today, whether they involve investing in a multi-billion dollar natural gas project or sustainable solutions for the family home, have energy implications for future generations. It is critical that we all face the challenges and embrace the opportunities. Because energy both its production and its use in an environmentally safe manner is a platform for broader economic growth and improves the quality of life of people throughout Australia and indeed the world. It is for these reasons that Chevron is dedicated to finding new and better ways to deliver current and emerging energy solutions. As embodied in our recently launched We Agree advertising campaign, we are committed to investing in new energy supplies because the world needs more than just oil. It will take all the energy we can produce, and in every form, to meet the projected global energy demand. That s why we re leading two of the world s largest natural gas projects right here in Australia. And we are doing this through ingenuity, high performance and partnerships all of which play a critical role in meeting the energy equation. We are also actively encouraging innovation at the local level. Our Perth Global Technology Centre provides technical expertise to Chevron s businesses within Australia and the Asia Pacific Region. Perth was selected because it has a source of talented technology experts; it s close to Chevron s interests in the region; and there are immense opportunities to partner with local universities and industry. It is through these partnerships we are helping shape Perth as a gas technology centre of excellence. We are proud of the advancements we have made in technology and the resulting contribution to the Australian economy. The two are intrinsically linked. The importance of innovations such as subsea technology, our carbon dioxide injection project and the Wheatstone LNG hub concept cannot be underestimated - for these breakthroughs have enabled us to advance our mega projects Gorgon and Wheatstone. As highlighted at the 2011 Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA) conference, this progress has also been to the benefit of local companies and the broader economy. Independent research indicates that during peak construction, our two projects will create an estimated 16,500 direct and indirect jobs and generate almost $50 billion in expenditure on Australian goods and services. As part of our commitment to fostering innovation in local companies, a number of Gorgon contracts have been awarded to Western Australian businesses that have provided technological advancements or purpose built solutions for the project. Examples include ICON Engineering and Kingston Bridge Engineering (KBE), who were awarded fabrication and manufacturing contracts worth $5.5 million and $8 million respectively. ICON is building a customised lift frame for use on the Atwood Osprey drilling rig, which arrived in Australian waters in May. KBE which is manufacturing high pressure polyethylene pipe for the project is one of only two companies in the world to develop technology that can make the pipe to our required specifications. However, investing in a local community like Western Australia is more than just building projects and awarding contracts no matter how big they are. It s about building strong and enduring partnerships in the communities in which we operate, because ultimately businesses can only succeed if the communities do. Innovative approaches, be it in terms of exploration and production technologies or community and business partnerships, are critical to our success. Ingenuity in every form is driving the next wave of energy projects in Australia and is why we invest so heavily in developing our people, our partnerships and our technologies. Roy J. Krzywosinski Chevron Australia Managing Director 4 Frontier Magazine

6 chevron australia Now is the Time to Invest Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski s address at a recent Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) breakfast provided the ideal platform to highlight to industry leaders the importance of investing in the future. Both the Gorgon and Wheatstone Projects will create billions of dollars of business for local industry and will also provide energy to Western Australia and the world for decades to come, Mr Krzywosinski said. During peak construction, these projects will create an estimated 16,500 direct and indirect jobs - generating almost $50 billion in expenditure on Australian goods and services and bolstering government coffers by more than $60 billion through various tax revenue streams. These are big numbers and great news for the local economy. On a global scale, Gorgon and Wheatstone are big construction projects. But investing in a local community like Western Australia is more than just building projects no matter how big the projects are. Mr Krzywosinski said that independent of the industry in which anyone worked, we all had a social responsibility and Chevron was no different. Our social responsibility manifests itself in many ways from protecting the environment and the health and safety of our workers to supporting local community groups and charities, he said. values and providing energy safely, reliably and economically. This is a huge responsibility that we take very seriously. He said that upholding these values was critical to the community accepting Chevron and critical to its social licence to operate. Businesses can only succeed if the communities do, Mr Krzywosinski said. Being recognised as a good partner takes a lot of hard work, trust and commitment. Mr Krzywosinski took the opportunity to unveil Chevron s We Agree advertising campaign, which was filmed in Western Australia and features local employees. The campaign, he said, focused on four key points which Chevron endorsed: It s about building strong and fruitful partnerships in the communities in which we operate. It s about having Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski, left, with Chevron Chair in Gas Process Engineering at the University of Western Australia, Winthrop Professor Eric May. 6 Frontier Magazine

Significantly, one of Mr Flaherty s first tasks in his new job was to take receipt of the Atwood Osprey rig which is being used to drill the Gorgon Project s development wells. Exploration, appraisal, resource evaluation, developing projects and people, and growing our impact business are exciting and motivating challenges to me, Mr Flaherty said. Australia is recognised as one of the most progressive areas for gas resources in the world and our exploration campaign in that area is Chevron s largest ever and, if track record is any indication, the key to future success. What we are going to achieve in the next few years is not only important for Chevron Australia but for Chevron as a whole. Our projects are in the spotlight with all our stakeholders - both internal and external. He said he was committed to building upon the past exploration and appraisal activity in Australia to Chevron Australia General Manager Asset Development Gerry Flaherty. 8 Frontier Magazine

9 Atwood Osprey Arrives and Spuds First Gorgon Development Well The new Atwood Osprey drill rig has arrived and has already put its name against a key Chevron Australia milestone. Asset Development Last month the Atwood Oceans 6th generation ultra-deepwater semisubmersible rig spudded the first of eight development wells in the Gorgon field signifying the start of a two-year continuous drilling campaign for the Gorgon Project. Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski said acquisition of the rig was in-line with the company s commitment to high performance and excellence and a continual strive to always improve. It is a purpose-built rig, which underpins our long-term commitment to find, appraise and develop Australian gas resources for domestic and international markets, Mr Krzywosinski said. Representing the latest in exploration technology, the rig: Can conventionally moor in up to 2,438 metres (8,000 feet) of water. Accommodate about 200 people. Has 12 anchors out at 1,800 metres radius from the rig, so has a 3,600m total diameter of coverage. Is 130 metres in height which is just 20m less than the height of the QV1 office building in the Perth CBD where Chevron Australia is headquartered. Can store about 10,000,000 litres of liquid (fuel, drilling mud, water) which is equivalent to filling about 108,300 Prado 4 wheel drive vehicles. The Atwood Osprey boasts a range of sophisticated technology. Atwood Osprey Interface Manager Leonard Wallace. New Acreage Offshore Australia Chevron Australia has successfully bid for the exploration rights to two blocks in the Carnarvon Basin offshore Western Australia. It will be the operator and will hold a 100 percent interest in the blocks. The permit areas, WA-455-P and WA-456-P, are located in the Barrow Sub-basin of the Carnarvon Basin, approximately 80 kilometres northwest of the Western Australian coastline. Chevron Australia Managing Director, Roy Krzywosinski said, Our successful bid for this exploration acreage reflects Chevron s ongoing commitment to the exploration and development of Australia s petroleum resources. It is also evidence of our intention to continue the pursuit of attractive growth opportunities in the region to meet global energy demands. The Atwood Osprey For the two permit areas, the initial three-year work program includes the acquisition and processing of two-dimensional seismic, geotechnical studies and the drilling of three exploration wells in total. Seismic work will begin later this year. Winter

11 APPEA 2011 Conference and Exhibition Chevron Shines at APPEA 2011 Conference Chevron Australia once again had a strong presence at the annual Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA) Conference and Exhibition, which attracted a record number of 3,190 delegates when held in Perth in April. Themed Tomorrow s Energy, Today, the conference started positively for Chevron when it received the APPEA Environment Award, for the second consecutive year, in recognition of its comprehensive Quarantine Management System (QMS) for the Gorgon Project. The following day, Chevron joined with the wider industry to congratulate Dr Harry Butler for receiving the prestigious 2011 Lewis G. Weeks Award, which commemorates outstanding contributions to the development of the Australian petroleum industry. Dr Butler was selected due to the positive impact his environmental work has had in enabling oil and gas exploration and development, in particular with respect to Chevron s operations, on Barrow Island, and received a standing ovation at the awards ceremony. Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski, who was present to congratulate Dr Butler when he received the award, said Dr Butler was a uniquely qualified and passionate individual who is dedicated to the protection of the environment, particularly on Barrow Island. Chevron has worked closely with Harry over the decades to demonstrate that with proper management, conservation and oil and gas development can co-exist, Mr Krzywosinski said. On the third day of the conference, Chevron Vice President and President Global Gas and Midstream John Gass delivered an informative address titled What Next for Gas? The Role of Innovation in Unlocking New Opportunities for Natural Gas. The speech highlighted the important role ingenuity plays in commercialising natural gas resources and included a number of examples from Chevron Australia s Wheatstone and Gorgon Projects. During the closing ceremony of the conference, Chevron Australia was again recognised when it received the Best Technical Poster Award for The Success Story of Windalia Waterflood Optimisation through Integrated Asset Management in a Mature Field. As part of the exhibition, Chevron Australia had a two-storey booth which provided healthy refreshments for APPEA delegates; information about our operations in Australia and merchandise with a health and wellness theme.

12 chevron australia Human Energy: Educating our Future Chevron s commitment to future energy leaders was highlighted when it sponsored the recent APPEA Student Industry and Career Awareness Workshops. The workshops were specifically designed to introduce the students to the world of opportunity that the oil and gas industry offers. Twelve secondary schools from across Western Australia were invited to participate in the program with over 80 students from Years 11 and 12 attending the one-day workshops, split over the final two days of the APPEA conference. Among the highlights for the students were presentations from Chevron Horizons Program graduates Jarrad Rexilius, Bree Goff and Darryl Naidu who gave an overview of their personal oil and gas journeys and highlights of working within the industry. A popular component of the workshops was a guided tour of the APPEA exhibition hall, where students were introduced to the various projects Chevron is undertaking in the State and other interesting developments within the industry. The students had the opportunity to meet 2011 Lewis G. Weeks Award Winner, Dr Harry Butler, and hear first-hand about the positive impact his environmental work has had in helping show that development and significant conservation values can coexist. Dr Butler gave the example of Barrow Island which was still a Class A Nature Reserve despite industry operating on the Island more than 40 years. Don Sanders and Jim Maguire from Energy Industry Integrated Solutions, who facilitated the workshop on behalf of APPEA, both agreed that it was vital to invest time into secondary school students now, and introduce them to the wealth of opportunity within the energy sector. That investment will prove benefits for the future of the industry, Mr Sanders said. I have no doubt that the workshop and actual attendance at APPEA has helped shape the future career direction of many of the students involved in the program. Poster Session Judged a Winner at Conference During the closing ceremony of the conference, Chevron Australia was recognised when it received Best Technical Poster Award for The success story of Windalia Waterflood optimisation through Integrated Asset Management in a Mature field. Lina Hartanto (Waterflood Team Lead) received this award on behalf of the WA Oil Waterflood team and Chevron. The paper was co-authored by Chevron Australia s Wisnu Widjanarko and Diala Muna. Australia s Barrow Island Windalia reservoir, the nation s largest onshore waterflood, was developed in the late 1960 s. The Barrow Island oilfield is Chevron Australia s only mature waterflood, comprising over 220 active injectors. At end of year 2010, Chevron s total daily production of crude oil on Barrow and Thevenard Island averaged 7,000 barrels. In September of 2008, the Windalia Waterflood achieved full field restitution involving the replacement and commissioning of glass-reinforced epoxy injection flow lines, a ring-main network and produced water re-injection facilities.

13 APPEA 2011 Conference and Exhibition Chevron receives APPEA Environment Award for Quarantine Management Chevron Australia was awarded the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA) Environment Award for the second consecutive year in recognition of its comprehensive Quarantine Management System (QMS) for the Gorgon Project. Chevron Australia Managing Director, Roy Krzywosinski, was presented with the award by APPEA Chairman Eric Streitberg, at the annual APPEA Conference and Exhibition held in Perth. In accepting the award Mr Krzywosinski said the QMS aims to facilitate the construction and operation of a gas processing facility on Barrow Island while simultaneously protecting the conservation values of the island. Through the efforts of our entire team from the quarantine team led by Johann Van Der Merwe to every single person working on site we are setting new benchmarks in disciplines including surveillance, monitoring, diagnostics, curatorship and incursion response, Mr Krzywosinski said. We have always been proud of our record on Barrow Island and this award further affirms our efforts. The QMS is the world s largest non-government quarantine initiative and consists of more than 300 procedures, specifications, checklists and guidelines to protect the biodiversity of Barrow Island and its surrounding waters. APPEA Chairman Eric Streitberg said Chevron had set what could be a new standard for excellence in quarantine management. The scale of the Gorgon Project presents new challenges Chevron has responded to these challenges by developing an extremely rigorous and comprehensive quarantine system, Mr Streitberg said.

14 GORGON PROJECT Local Fabricator Helping to Build the Gorgon Project WA-based AusGroup subsidiary AGC Industries highlighted its international competitiveness recently, being awarded two contracts to fabricate pipe spools and adjustable pipe supports for the Gorgon Project. The fabrication of the 8,200 pipe spools weighing approximately 7,500 tonnes and varying in diameter will take about 18 months to complete, starting in the second half of Between 100 and 150 people are expected to be employed on the production of the pipe spools, which will connect assembly units on the gas plant. The work is valued at approximately $50 million and will be completed at AGC s fabrication facilities in Kwinana and Henderson - 50 kilometres south of Perth. The company was also recently awarded a separate contract to fabricate adjustable pipe support structures, with an estimated value of $12 million. AGC s Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Stuart Kenny said the contracts were pivotal in the company s future development. This is an important milestone for AGC - these opportunities underpin our growth and delivery aspirations within the Australian natural resources industry, Mr Kenny said. Chevron Australia Gorgon Project Development Director W. Scott Young said the awards clearly showed that local industry could win internationally competitive contracts for appropriate work scopes. In many sectors transport, logistics, services, accommodation and fabrication local companies have been competitive internationally and have secured significant contracts with the Gorgon Project, Mr Young said. His words were echoed by WA Commerce Minister Simon O Brien who attended a special event marking the AGC Industries announcement of the pipe spools contract win and said a healthy and competitive local fabrication industry was in everyone s interest. As the Gorgon Project progresses, more and more local industry work will be required, Mr O Brien said. AGC joins a number of other WA engineering firms working on steel fabrication for the Gorgon Project. Colin Beckett Chevron Australia Greater Gorgon Area General Manager The Gorgon Project is operated by an Australian subsidiary of Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (approximately 47 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent) and Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (one percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent). 14 Frontier Magazine

15 Supporting Local Businesses Committed to Supporting Local Businesses These jobs are spread right through the metropolitan area of Perth - including the Kwinana area - in the Pilbara at Dampier and on Barrow Island and across Australia, Mr Barnett said. The Gorgon Joint Venture is delivering work to local workshops, construction companies and specialist engineering firms through both direct contracts and work flowing from key project contractors - creating thousands of jobs in the process. It was this flow-on effect that could not be underestimated, according to Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski. This demonstrates local fabrication can compete on an international basis as these contracts were bid for by both local and international fabricators, Mr Krzywosinski said. Significantly, Gorgon is on track to deliver $20 billion in Australian Industry Participation expenditure during its initial construction phase and around 90 per cent of this will flow to Western Australia. (From left to right) Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski, WA Commerce and Small Business Minister Simon O Brien, AGC Industries General Manager Fabrication and Manufacturing Ken Scully and WA Premier Colin Barnett discuss local content opportunities at AGC s premises in Henderson. The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project continues to create opportunities for local businesses with flow-on benefits to the workforce across Western Australia. The Gorgon Joint Venture has already committed more than $12 billion to local industry as Western Australian engineering firms continue to demonstrate their international competitiveness by securing complex infrastructure and fabrication work for the $43 billion project. Hundreds of businesses across a range of industries have benefitted from project work since construction started in late WA Premier Colin Barnett has welcomed work flowing from the Gorgon Project to local business, creating jobs throughout the community. Examples include the recently awarded Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation and Commissioning Contract, which will generate more than 1,650 jobs in Western Australia as part of a $2 billion commitment to local industry. In addition, more than $100 million was recently committed to local fabricators AGC Industries and Civmec, which is expected to result in more than 200 jobs in the Kwinana area. Several sub-contracts were also let to local firms by LNG and condensate tanks constructor CBI. AGC Industries is just one of the latest local companies to receive fabrication work pertaining to the Gorgon Project and will employ more than 100 people to produce pipe spools and adjustable pipe supports for the gas plant. Mr Krzywosinski highlighted that the work awarded to AGC Industries and Civmec was an example of local fabricators presenting competitive bids. Winter

16 GORGON PROJECT WA Company Awarded Major Fabrication Contract for Gorgo Significant investment in new technology has helped Western Australian Construction and Engineering secure a contract for the fabrication and fabricated structural steel for the Gorgon Project, on Barrow Island. Civmec will supply approximately 10,000 tonnes of structural steel, which will be used in the construction of the gas processing plant on Barrow Island. The company is a multi-disciplined Western Australian service provider to the mining, oil and gas, infrastructure, utilities and power sectors and engineering, procurement, construction management contractors across Australia. The Gorgon contract is expected to create work for about 60 employees at Civmec s Henderson yard, adjacent to the Australian Marine Complex, over 18 months. And, there is potential for the manpower to grow. It follows the company s previous work to fabricate massive concrete structures for a material offloading facility required by the project. Civmec CEO James Fitzgerald said the contract is an opportunity for the company to make a major contribution to Gorgon. We are grateful to Chevron for this award, as it is a major commitment to local fabrication, Mr Fitzgerald said. This is a significant achievement and an important milestone for Civmec and a vote of confidence in our focus on safety and reliability. This opportunity is central to our future growth strategy and reinforces our focus to bring more young people on board through apprenticeships because that s where the future of our industry lies. Mr Fitzgerald said Civmec has made a significant investment in its workshop by installing the most modern automated fabrication, welding, lifting and surface treatment equipment. This, combined with its large undercover workshop, enables Civmec to safely produce up to 60,000 tonnes of fabricated steel per year, whilst remaining competitive in a globally challenging market, as well as maximising local participation.

19 Creating Local Jobs Gorgon Making Progress and Growing the Local Workforce The workforce on Barrow Island continues to grow as the Gorgon Project gathers momentum and strives towards first gas in The first three clusters of the main construction village are now fully occupied, while the fourth is nearing completion, Chevron Australia Gorgon Project Development Director W. Scott Young said. In total there will be 12 clusters which, used in conjunction with other existing accommodation, will see an on-island workforce of around 5,000 at peak construction. Mr Young also highlighted that dredging of the LNG shipping channel, jetty berth pocket and the material offloading facility area was now also nearing completion. The pioneer material offloading facility has been connected to the Barrow Island causeway. Another 2011 milestone was achieved when horizontal directional drilling commenced in mid-april. Nine holes have now been drilled and preparations are underway for the insertion of the almost one-kilometre pipe to the seafloor. Furthermore, an access agreement has been signed with the Dampier to Bunbury Pipeline - the final link in the chain of Gorgon s domestic gas infrastructure. In addition, progress is being made on environmental approval for a fourth LNG train expansion. However, according to Mr Young, the key to delivering the project was a robust incident and injury free performance, tied to sound execution of project plans. And that includes always being mindful of our environmental responsibilities on Barrow Island, he said. Right Chevron Australia Gorgon Project Development Director W. Scott Young.

20 GORGON PROJECT Chevron and Local Businesses Thousands of Australians are helping to build the iconic Gorgon Project with workers in fabrication yards, factories and supply companies across the nation banding together with construction personnel on Barrow Island to help realise Australia s largest single resource project. WA fabrication yards have been busy producing steel structures for the project s major contractors Allseas, the Saipem Leighton Consortium (SLC) and CB&I Constructors, among others. Local companies across the Perth metropolitan area are also busy manufacturing or constructing key elements of the project. In Canning Vale, TanksWest is fabricating water tanks and effluent treatment tanks while Bibra Lake business Bellotti & Co is fabricating more than 1,500 tonnes of steel formwork systems for SLC. The trickle-down effect of the $43 billion project is visible across the local industry. In Kwinana, LNG and condensate tanks engineering and construction company, CB&I Constructors, continues to turn to local vendors for the manufacture and supply of key packages. The company has a $600 million contract to build two LNG tanks, condensate tanks and associated works for the Gorgon Project. Its recent local sub-contract awards include: Universal Transformer Manufacturers WA manufacture and supply of transformers. Auto Controls Systems supply of foundation heating control panels. compressors and air receivers. Garlock WA supply of gaskets. Kiddie Australia supply of linear heating detection system. Chevron Australia Greater Gorgon Area General Manager Colin Beckett said the impact of the Gorgon Joint Venture s local investment would grow as the money flowed through the economy. What we re seeing at the moment is just the tip of the iceberg as we anticipate about $20 billion will flow to Australian industry during the construction phase of the Gorgon Project, Mr Beckett said.

27 LNG Buyer Visits Project Site its First Japanese eatstone Project Senior representatives from Tokyo Electric Power Company Inc. (TEPCO) and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation visited Onslow with Chevron representatives earlier this year. The group toured the Wheatstone Project site at Ashburton North and had an opportunity to meet representatives from the local community. The visit came ahead of TEPCO signing Wheatstone s first Sales and Purchase Agreement with Chevron, as well as Apache and KUFPEC for the delivery of 3.1 million tonnes a year of liquefied natural gas for up to 20 years from the project. TEPCO is also discussing Wheatstone equity arrangements with Chevron. Chevron Australia Managing Director, Roy Krzywosinski, said the TEPCO agreement and other LNG agreements Chevron was finalising gave Wheatstone great momentum. The Ashburton site earmarked for the LNG processing plant is ideally located to unlock the significant gas resources in the western Carnarvon basin, he said. Wheatstone Project General Manager Brian Smith added international buyers of LNG were keenly interested in the project. World demand for energy is growing, particularly in Asia, and LNG is in demand because of its price, reliability of supply and environmental benefits, Mr Smith said. LNG is a very important energy source in the mix of energy for the Japanese economy and the continued support of TEPCO as an experienced LNG customer is important for the success of the project. Chevron has already committed about 80 percent of LNG from the Wheatstone foundation project to premier LNG buyers in Japan and Korea. This LNG will help feed Asia s rapidly growing appetite for cleanerburning fuel. The Wheatstone Project also includes plans to boost domestic gas production in Western Australia.

29 Latest Joint Venture Participant Shell Joins the Wheatstone Project Shell has become the latest joint venture participant to join the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project. Shell Development (Australia) Pty Ltd (Shell) will assume an 8 per cent participating interest in the Wheatstone and iago natural gas fields which will supply the foundation project and a 6.4 per cent interest in the project facilities at Ashburton North. Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski said Shell s decision to become a joint venture participant was another significant step forward for the project. Shell s entry into the Wheatstone Project further demonstrates the success of our LNG hub model, a concept that is taking a long-term approach to keeping the country s natural gas sector producing for generations to come, Mr Krzywosinski said. We have a strong foundation project with joint venture participants Apache Julimar Pty Ltd (Apache), Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (KUFPEC) and Shell, which reinforces Chevron s position as a partner of choice within the Australian energy industry. Apache and KUFPEC joined the project in 2010 and will provide gas from their Julimar and Brunello gas fields. Chevron and the Wheatstone joint venture participants are expected to make a Final Investment Decision on the project in the second half of Shell s entry into the Wheatstone Project further demonstrates the success of our LNG hub model, a concept that is taking a long-term approach to keeping the country s LNG sector producing for generations to come.

31 EPA Report Released Wheatstone Reaches Another Critical Milestone The Wheatstone Project has reached another critical milestone with the Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) recommending conditional environmental approval. Chevron is seeking approval for a 25 million tonne per annum (mtpa) LNG facility and associated domestic gas plant, along with associated offshore infrastructure. The initial foundation project involves a two-train LNG facility processing a combined 8.9 mtpa, and a domestic gas plant. Chevron Australia Managing Director, Roy Krzywosinski, said the report s release marked an important step towards a Final Investment Decision (FID) in the second half of 2011 on one of Australia s biggest resource projects. The Wheatstone Project is set to boost Australia s position as a major LNG (liquefied natural gas) player on the world energy stage, Mr Krzywosinski said. The project is Australia s first-ever LNG hub concept that is expected to enable the efficient production of Australia s vast natural gas resources, he added. Chevron Australia Wheatstone Project General Manager, Brian Smith, believes the environmental and social impacts can be effectively managed. The front-end engineering and design phase of the Wheatstone Project is complete and we are continuing to work with government to obtain timely project approvals, Mr Smith said. Following the release of the EPA Report, the process involved a two week appeals period before all conclusions by the Appeals Convener were submitted to the WA Minister for Environment for his consideration. This enables the State Minister to make an informed decision on the Wheatstone Project. The final step in the process will be for the Commonwealth Minister for the Environment to consider the assessment by his Department and to make a decision, which will mean the Wheatstone Project will be able to make the FID in the second half of Chevron Environmental Impact Assessment Coordinator Joe Sanderson said that lots of hard work had gone into preparing the Environmental Impact Assessment for the Wheatstone Project, both by Chevron and the government agencies. As part of the Wheatstone Project, a comprehensive range of environmental studies were undertaken on-site. Winter

33 Onslow Open Day Onslow Locals Speak with Experts First Hand at Open Day As the Wheatstone Project s environmental approvals process continues, the project s environmental team recently hosted a third Community Open Day in Onslow. The Open Day, which attracted locals and visitors to Onslow, provided information about the Response to Submissions document recently published as part of the Wheatstone Project s environmental impact assessment. The project s Health, Environment and Safety Manager, Steve McHugh, said there were good quality conversations with attendees at the Open Day. These types of environmental approvals can take a long time and it s good to see that the local community are interested and want to be involved right to the end, Mr McHugh said. Various environmental specialists from Chevron were available on the day to give an update on the project and Chevron s responses to the submissions received during the public review period, which concluded in October Also included as part of the event was a poster display of updated environmental assessment information and a specially produced brochure which answered some of the common questions asked. Chevron Australia Wheatstone External Affairs Manager, Graeme Harman, said the Open Day gave the community a chance to speak to Chevron s specialists first-hand. It also allows our Chevron representatives a chance to hear frankly from the community about the project, Mr Harman said. The Response to Submissions document was publicly released in March The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) provided to the State Minister for the Environment its report and recommendations on the project in June This report contains the EPA s proposed conditions of approval for the project. Following the release of the EPA Report, a statutory two-week appeals period provided any party, including Chevron, the opportunity to appeal against the proposed conditions of approval. Following determination of all appeals, the Western Australian and Commonwealth Minister for the Environment will make their decisions on whether to provide environmental approval of the project. Environmental experts from Chevron s Health, Environment and Safety team gave Onslow visitors and residents a deeper insight into the Wheatstone Project at the open day.

35 Committed to Environmental Excellence Discovering the Secrets of the Sawfish To further understand how local marine species interact with their habitats, Chevron Australia has commissioned an environmental study into behaviours of one of the lesser known creatures of the local creek systems - the sawfish. Currently two species have been identified, Pristis microdon also known as the Largetooth sawfish, and Pristis zijsron the Longcomb or Green sawfish. Both species are listed as vulnerable on the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act list of Threatened Fauna, making it illegal to fish for sawfish in Australia. To better understand both the day-today and long-term movements of the sawfish, Chevron Australia recently instigated an acoustic tagging program - in keeping with the conditions of a permit issued by the State Government under the Fish Resources Act. As part of the program, environmental specialists, led by Dr. David Morgan from the Centre for Fish and Fisheries Research at Murdoch University, spent 10 days in Onslow at Four Mile Creek, Hooley Creek and the Ashburton River catching the fish, tagging them and deploying the acoustic receivers. The receivers will log the unique ID of the tagged sawfish, the location and the time they passed. Chevron Australia Environmental Operations Coordinator for the Wheatstone Project, Dr Glen Young, said that this survey will contribute to information on sawfish biology and ecology. The information gathered during the survey will help us understand how sawfish use the different habitats within the local creek systems and if sawfish move between creeks, Dr Young said. The data will enable us to make more educated decisions on the best way to conserve local sawfish populations and their habitats. Below This sawfish found near Onslow has been tagged to provide Chevron and scientists with valuable research information, including habitat utilisation. Protecting People and the Environment We place the highest priority on the health and safety of our workforce and protection of our assets and the environment. We aim to be admired for worldclass performance through disciplined application of our Operational Excellence Management System. The Chevron Way Winter

36 chevron australia Focussed on the Environment Carine High School s Zachary Cartledge entered Barley in last year s Focus Environment competition. Photography A Creative Way to Learn About the Environment Awareness and appreciation of the environment are always a focus in the classroom of Carine Senior High School Teacher/Coordinator of Photography and Design Paul Brooker, which is why his school has embraced Chevron Australia s Focus Environment photography competition. The competition is open to all WA primary and secondary students and is aimed at raising awareness among young people about protecting and managing the environment. Mr Brooker said the school had been supporting Focus Environment for the past five years, and estimated about 200 students from the school had entered photographs in the various categories during this time. This competition is great in that it gets kids to really appreciate our local environment, Mr Brooker said. I especially like the 'Natures Moods' theme as this is all about getting out there and experiencing the beauty of weather/nature and how it interacts with the environment. Mr Brooker said students were enthusiastic about the competition because of the public recognition they received for their photography. He said writing the captions for the photographs helped students think deeply about what their photograph communicated and this in turn led them to appreciate the medium and importantly what they had personally achieved in the image. Mr Brooker encouraged other schools to become involved in the competition because it could form the basis of a cross-curricular task, especially in primary schools. Students could interpret and apply a theme, plan and produce images that they can link to a theme, and through analysis then write a caption, learn about the environment and get involved in it. Above all the students get great satisfaction from entering their work into something like this, win or not it is exciting for all, he said.

37 In the Community Embracing Arts and Culture to Help Strengthen Communities At Chevron Australia, harnessing creative energies through the arts and culture is viewed as a key enabler to developing a strong community. The creative arts play an important role in sustainable community development - primarily because of the economic benefits they can create and the positive outcomes they achieve in areas such as education, health, community building, diversity and urban renewal, Chevron Australia General Manager Policy, Government and Public Affairs Peter Fairclough said. Supporting creative communities in Western Australia aligns with Chevron s core values of celebrating diversity, encouraging ingenuity and our commitment to being a good partner. In-line with that philosophy, Chevron is a proud sponsor of a range of arts and cultural based organisations. Our partnerships include those with the Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Black Swan Theatre Company and the Roebourne Art Group. Mr Fairclough added that the company s social investment was concentrated in Perth - where Chevron Australia is headquartered - and in the north-west of WA where its operations were based. We partner with the communities where we work to deliver sustainable social and economic benefits. Doing so is fundamental to the broader success we seek to achieve as a business.

The studios will be constructed by TR Homes. Speaking at the Big Rain Coming exhibition and launch in Perth - which announced the partnership and celebrated the artistic achievements of Roebourne Art Group artists, FORM Executive Director Lynda Dorrington said developing and positioning creativity had the ability to strengthen communities. And, with at least ten per cent of Roebourne s population either a practising artist or associated with one of the town s two art groups, there was no doubt the building would play a significant role in the community. This project will deliver purpose-built accommodation for the Roebourne Art Group backed by ongoing mentoring, education and business development support, Ms Dorrington said. Her words were echoed by Chevron Australia Gorgon Development Manager W. Scott Young who said the new art centre and the ongoing professional development of Roebourne artists would enrich the cultural tapestry of the Pilbara region and generate flow-on social and economic benefits. Chevron and the Gorgon Joint Venture are excited to partner with FORM and the State Government in a project that builds on the social, economic and the cultural strengths of the Pilbara s Indigenous communities, Mr Young said.

Creative Arts Partnership Shared core values of diversity and ingenuity were central to Chevron Australia s recent partnership announcement with the Black Swan State Theatre Company. It was that fundamental aligned philosophy - coupled with Chevron Australia s commitment to being a good partner in the communities where it operates - that helped bring the critically acclaimed play Boundary Street to Perth audiences recently. Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski attended the sell-out opening night performance at the new State Theatre Centre of WA and said he was proud the company was able to contribute to the WA community through the arts. The creative arts play an important role in sustainable community development, Mr Krzywosinski said. By working hand-in-hand with Black Swan, we are able to build human capacity and create long lasting social benefits for people in the Western Australian community and we re very proud to be a part of that. Boundary Street offered a unique insight into a turbulent moment in Australia s history. Set in 1942, it followed the story of three African- American soldiers in Brisbane during a time when the world was at war. The arrival in Australia of United States troops provides a ray of hope. A highlight of Boundary Street was new compositions by jazz legend, James Morrison, who after the play s season, wowed Chevron staff and the lunchtime CBD business crowd by performing a free concert in the QV1 courtyard. Black Swan s General Manager Shane Colquhoun said it was fantastic to welcome Chevron as a sponsor of the company in I m extremely pleased that the world premiere production of Boundary Street that Chevron supported sold out three weeks before the opening night, he said. The free lunchtime concert of James Morrison and Band in the QV1 forecourt - which was made possible with Chevron s support - gave many people a chance to see James Morrison and hear some of the songs from the play, even if they missed out on tickets to the play itself. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the Chevron team and look forward to creating many more memorable moments such as this with Chevron s support.

44 Chevron Australia Theatre Group Partnership helps Highlight Aboriginal Culture Waltzing the Wilarra is a milestone in Milroy s career and...yirra Yaakin. ABC Perth A shared value focused on the importance of supporting the development of strong communities, cultural diversity and leadership was a key impetus to Chevron Australia and Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company forming a working relationship. Already the partnership has helped bring to fruition a world-class theatre production comprising an entirely Indigenous cast and there are now plans to take a new play to North West communities. Put simply, the arrangement helps enable Aboriginal communities to continue to perform their own stories, Yirra Yaakin Chariperson Clem Rodney said of the Chevron sponsorship announcement. Yirra Yaakin exists to share Aboriginal stories. We look to the past to help define the present, and pass stories on for the future. Our artists and outcomes will improve the cultural health of all involved and allow space for an Aboriginal voice to be heard. In essence we share many of the same values as Chevron. Chevron Australia Policy, Government and Public Affairs General Manager Peter Fairclough said the company was particularly impressed by Yirra Yaakin s Acclaimed Indigenous artists Trevor Jamieson, Ursula Yovoch and David Milroy on lead guitar in the Waltzing the Wilarra production.

45 Creative Partnerships dedication to supporting Aboriginal cultural diversity in Western Australia. We wanted to embark on a partnership with an organisation that we believe provides value to the cultural landscape in Western Australia, he said. Working with Yirra Yaakin provided the opportunity to support the sustainability of Aboriginal arts and culture in our community. Significantly, while Yirra Yaakin s core audience is derived from its theatre productions in Perth, it also reached members of the community through its metropolitan and regional touring program. Audiences are also reached through the company s national and international programming, workshops, festivals and events. The producing of a published script and a cast recording (CD) is supporting the sustainability of the project beyond its first season. Chevron support of the company as a Major Touring Partner also helped extend its significant educational program with plans now underway to take the new production of Good Lovin on the road. With Chevron and the Gorgon joint venture participant s assistance, we have been given the opportunity to take this important work about sexual health to the Pilbara communities of Onslow, Roebourne and Karratha in September 2011, Ms Richardson said. The shows are free to attend and are targeted towards specific audiences and communities. Touring is essential to Yirra Yaakin s community engagement and educational programs, and needs support given the significant rise in costs of touring remote regional areas. No one can do what Yirra Yaakin can do in reaching and connecting directly with Indigenous communities - speaking and sharing with each other about their values and beliefs. It was the world premiere season of the critically acclaimed bluesical Waltzing the Wilarra by David Milroy, as part of the Perth International Arts Festival 2011, that set the benchmark for theatre productions, with a world-class show and a leading cast of Indigenous artists drawn from across Australia Chevron s sponsorship assisted the company in being able to solely produce and present the work the first time that an Indigenous company has produced a major work of scale retaining 100 per cent cultural ownership, Yirra Yaakin Acting General Manager Sally Richardson said....yirra Yaakin Theatre Company has a hit on their hands.

46 chevron australia Fostering Global Opportunities for Local Businesses Supporting trade between Australia and the USA is one of the benefits of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCHAM) in Australia s Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) trade mission to Houston. And, in line with Chevron s commitment to supporting local businesses, sponsorship was extended to a number of Western Australian small to medium enterprises to attend the recent high profile trade mission. Local companies Eastland Medical, GMA Garnet, Handley Surveys, Mobilarm and Velocious all attended the event as a consequence of Chevron s sponsorship. Chevron selects companies with innovative products or services, which are relevant to our business both locally and internationally. The annual trade missions have progressively matured since inception, strengthening the connection between Perth and Houston through the OTC s international attendance of representatives from the oil and gas industry globally. The AmCHAM trade mission is a valued source of commercial opportunities including global business and customer networking and technology and innovation transfer, Chevron Australia Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski said. The trade mission is a vital event for such companies to enable broader business relationships in the global arena. Mr Krzywosinski said that if local companies could bring world-class expertise and technology to our projects here in Australia, then a far greater portion of our expenditures on these projects was likely to remain in Australia, further growing those companies and our State and national economies. Helping to foster and create such winwin situations is good business for us, for our potential suppliers and for the industry as a whole. The trade missions are organised by AmCHAM WA General Manager Penelope Williamson, and have been running for the past 14 years. The AmCHAM trade mission is a valued source of commercial opportunities including global business and customer networking and technology and innovation transfer, Ms Williamson said. It therefore makes perfect sense to build effective connections between Perth and Houston to enhance networking and stimulate business growth. Fostering and growing connections, with local expertise, is valued by companies like Chevron. These partnerships confirm and broaden our commercial relationships; provide a diversity of viewpoints and solutions; and also help enable the technology and innovation that we build into our business at both the global and local level right here in Australia. This partnership encourages the exchange of energy industry knowledge and economic and infrastructure development strategies. This year s conference included a presentation from the Chevron Houston office regarding global procurement, which was well received by the 2011 OTC delegation.

47 A Global Workforce At Chevron, people are at the centre of everything we do. Our desire to attract and retain high performing people is a key component of our company vision and differentiates us from our competitors. This philosophy is encompassed within our continual strive for excellence mantra. Venezuela A Passport Stamp to the World Of Opportunity for Employees Chevron Australia s Total Remuneration Manager, Tracy Rattray, is one of those employees who participated in an international short-term assignment, following a career development discussion with her Manager. As a global company with global opportunities, Chevron employees have access to a truly collaborative and global work experience with more than 100 training and development programs on offer, including short term career development assignments and expatriate opportunities. After expressing her strong interest in taking an overseas assignment, Ms Rattray was selected by the company s Human Resources Personnel Development Committee for a three month assignment in Chevron s Caracas office in Venezuela. For Ms Rattray, the experience provided an opportunity to both see first-hand how Chevron operated in another country and also provide some understanding to them on how challenges they faced were addressed in Australia. Significantly, it was a mutual learning experience, with both the Caracas and Australia offices of Chevron benefiting from the short-term assignment. One of the best things about this assignment was that I really got to learn about, and understand the business in Caracas, how they operated, what complexities and challenges they face, what their vision is for the future and what changes they need to make to get there, Ms Rattray said. Understanding the complexities associated with working in a business unit that covers five countries with three languages spoken, as well as the Non-Operating Joint Venture partner relationship with the Government, were all part of the experience, one which Ms Rattray feels immensely benefited her professional and personal development. Chevron has been fantastic in supporting my career development and I have had the opportunity to work on some great projects and work for some great people, all of whom have been genuinely interested in my interests and aspirations and have found ways to keep me challenged in my positions. With the exceptional growth Chevron Australia is currently experiencing, Human Resources General Manager Kaye Butler encourages people who are looking for a long-term, rewarding career to visit chevronaustralia.com for current opportunities. No matter where you are on your career path, Chevron offers ongoing education and training to help its employees develop their skills and expand their career, developing our employees is a priority, says Ms Butler. Chevron Australia Total Remuneration Manager Tracy Rattray spent her recent birthday in Venezuela, on assignment. Winter

49 Rob de Castella signs on as the Chevron City to Surf Ambassador Australia s most successful marathon runner ever Rob de Castella has signed on as Ambassador for the 2011 Chevron City to Surf for Activ. Chevron City to Surf The four times Olympian says he is proud to be associated with the Chevron City to Surf for Activ which is recognised as the premier community event in Western Australia. Congratulating Chevron for its commitment to the community via the charities benefiting from Chevron City to Surf for Activ, and in promoting the important messages associated with health and wellness, he said it was a win win for all involved. Active is Fun Active is fun, Mr de Castella said when in Perth recently to promote the event. As a species, we are meant to move. Man s ability to cover long distance by foot makes us superior. But with affluence and modern tools now available there is a real epidemic regarding obesity particularly in children because they are not as active as they once were. Events like Chevron City to Surf which promotes getting outside and exercising from gentle walking to a trying marathon - are a step in the right direction. Couple that with the fact you are raising money for people who need it most 115 charities to be exact - and you re on a winner. In essence, you re not out there just doing it for yourself but rather for others in the community also via the charities and that is a great feeling. Active is Rewarding Mr de Castella, whose amazing runs in the 1980 s encouraged many people to watch or participate in marathons, said it was not surprising such a grueling event was on the wish list of many people. He attributed it to the fact that marathon running was both an emotional and physical challenge. Everyone I have ever met who has run a marathon has an incredible feeling of pride and accomplishment, he said. Active is Easy Encouraging everyone to be active, Mr de Castella said running was a very simple thing to do. You just put one foot in front of the other as simple as that. Laughing, he said it was way easier than sports like golf! Mr de Castella said it was setting personal best records that was most important. It is an accomplishment if you are doing your best, he said. Like Chevron, I agree that events like the City to Surf should support the community.
