Australian Mining reported that Chevron has signed a natural gas delivery agreement with BHP Nickel West from the Chevron-operated Wheatstone domestic gas facility. From this July, Chevron will supply BHP Nickel West with 22 petajoules of equity domestic gas over the 3.5-year agreement term. Chevron Australia managing director Al Williams said the agreement highlighted the important role of using natural gas in powering critical industries like mining.

BHP Nickel West made significant progress in the 2019 financial year as it worked to become a leading supplier to the battery materials market, selling over 70 per cent of its production to this sector. It also progressed construction works at the Kwinana nickel refinery, with stage 1 expected to produce up to 100,000 tonnes per annum of nickel sulphate. As the company continues to develop its mines in Western Australia’s northern Goldfields, it is expecting first ore production from the Leinster B11 undercut in the second half of the 2020 calendar year, pending approvals.
