Chevron restarts Gorgon train

Energy giant Chevron has resumed production at one of its two production units at the Gorgon LNG plant in Western Australia, following a shutdown in late November 2016. 

The Barrow Island-located Gorgon project is supplied from the Gorgon and Jansz-Io offshore gas fields.

According to information provided to Offshore Energy Today by a spokesperson for Chevron, Gorgon LNG Train 1 operation resumed earlier this week.

The spokesperson also said that production was halted in late November 2016 to assess and address some performance variations.

“Train 2 production was unaffected and we continued to produce LNG and load cargos during this time,” the spokesperson added.

Chevron claims Gorgon is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects with a total production capacity of about 2.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas and 20,000 barrels of condensate per day.

The Chevron-operated Gorgon project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).
