Chevron Strikes Gas at Exmouth Plateau, Offshore Australia

Chevron's 12th Gas Discovery Offshore Australia since 2009

Chevron Australia Pty Ltd today announced a natural gas discovery in the Exmouth Plateau area of the Carnarvon Basin, offshore Western Australia. 

The Vos-1 well encountered approximately 138 metres (453 feet) of net gas pay. Located in the WA-439-P permit area approximately 300 kilometres (186 miles) from Exmouth on the Western Australian coast, the well was drilled in 1484 metres (4869 feet) of water to a depth of 3798 metres (12,461 feet).

George Kirkland, vice chairman, Chevron Corporation, said, “The find at Vos-1 represents our twelfth offshore discovery in Australia since mid-2009. Our successful drilling program offshore Western Australia demonstrates Chevron’s global exploration capability.”

Melody Meyer, president, Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production Company, said, “Our on-going exploration success continues to add to our Australian resource base,  further underpinning our drive to be a leading supplier of liquefied natural gas to world markets and natural gas to Western Australia.”

Chevron’s Australian subsidiary is the operator of WA-439-P and holds a 50 percent interest, with Shell Development (Australia) Pty Ltd holding the remaining 50 percent.
