Wheatstone LNG Project

The Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project is one of Australia’s largest resource projects. The Initial phase of the project consisted of two liquefied natural gas trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonne per annum and a domestic gas plant.

Through our LNG focussed joint venture, KSJV, Kentech secured a contract with Bechtel, an international engineering and construction company headquartered in the USA, for the electrical and instrumentation pre-commissioning, commissioning and start up services for the downstream portion of the Wheatstone LNG processing facility including OSBL, Two Trains and a Domgas Plant.

Work commenced on site in early 2016 and completed in March 2019.  Throughout the course of the project, our team delivered close to 1.3 million safe manhours with a peak of almost 400 men on site.


On Tuesday 9th February 2021, we announced an agreement to acquire the oil & gas business of SNC-Lavalin’s Resources Division.

This business includes people and assets brought together through their acquisition of the Kentz and other energy services businesses. This transaction marks an exciting, ground-breaking development for Kentech to reinforce our position as a leading integrated energy services provider and introduces us to the renewable / clean power marketplace. We now move forward together with a global network of more than 10,000 professionals united by a commitment of common values and strong partnerships with clients from across the world.

By investing now, we are strategically positioning the company to take advantage of the next cycle of growth.

Our complementary businesses will join forces, creating a stronger offering across the full asset life cycle – from consulting to design and build, commissioning and start-up, through to maintenance, modification and turnaround, as well as decommissioning services.
