Chevron temporarily stops output at one Gorgon unit

Energy giant Chevron has temporarily suspended output from one of its two production units at the Gorgon LNG plant in Western Australia. 

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

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.

Following reports about Chevron’s temporary halt on Gorgon production, Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Chevron seeking confirmation and further details.

In an emailed response, the company’s spokesperson said: “Production from Gorgon LNG Train 1 has been temporarily halted as we assess some recent performance variations.”

Regarding the second unit, the spokesperson added: “Train 2 production is unaffected, and we continue to produce LNG and load cargos.” Chevron did not say how long the outage will last.

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).
