Chevron con­tin­ues sup­port

Pilbara News - - News -

The Chevron-op­er­ated Wheat­stone Pro­ject and Onslow Cham­ber of Com­merce and Industry have re­newed a part­ner­ship that will see the oil and gas gi­ant pro­vide funds to sup­port Onslow’s busi­ness com­mu­nity for the fourth year in a row.

The fund­ing en­ables OCCI to em­ploy a chief ex­ec­u­tive, keep its of­fice open and start devel­op­ment of a busi­ness sup­port pro­gram. OCCI pres­i­dent Ge­off Her­bert said it was grate­ful to have Chevron’s sup­port.

“As one of our com­mu­nity’s largest busi­nesses we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to grow our re­la­tion­ship,” he said. Chevron Aus­tralia com­mu­nity en­gage­ment su­per­vi­sor Erin Glancy said the OCCI played a vi­tal role in the com­mu­nity.

“Since the start of Wheat­stone Pro­ject con­struc­tion in late 2011, we have spent more than $455 mil­lion with lo­cal Onslow busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions for site con­struc­tion con­tracts and town-based ser­vices such as trans­port, ca­ter­ing, venue hire and gen­eral sup­plies,” she said.
