Chevron to Ship First LNG Cargo from Gorgon Next Week

The first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo from the Gorgon Project on Barrow Island off the northwest coast of Western Australia is expected to be shipped next week, US-based energy giant Chevron Corporation said as it started producing LNG and condensate yesterday.

“We expect legacy assets such as Gorgon will drive long-term growth and create shareholder value for decades to come,” said Chairman and CEO John Watson.

“The long-term fundamentals for LNG are attractive, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, and this is a significant milestone for all involved.”

The Gorgon Project is supplied from the Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields, located within the Greater Gorgon area, between 130 km and 220 km off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

It includes a 15.6 MTPA LNG plant on Barrow Island, a carbon dioxide injection project and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to supply 300 terajoules of gas per day to Western Australia.

The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell, Osaka Gas, Tokyo Gas and Chubu Electric Power.
