    June 11 (Reuters) - Chevron CVX.N has suspended production at its Wheatstone gas facility in Australia to complete repairs to the platform's fuel gas system, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday.

    Chevron began suspending operations at 11 p.m. (1500 GMT) on Monday.

    "As the offshore platform provides gas to Wheatstone’s onshore facilities near Onslow, Western Australia, LNG and domestic gas production has been suspended," the spokesperson said.

    Production is said to resume following completion of the repair at the facility which has an export capacity of 8.9 million tons a year.

    Wheatstone's top customers in 2024, based on LSEG's supply data available so far this year, were Japan and South Korea, followed by China and Taiwan.
