LNG production begins at Gorgon project

The offshore Gorgon Project in Western
Australia has begun producing LNG, with the first shipment expected to be sent
in the week starting March 14.

The facility operates 130km off the northwest coast of Western
Australia, and includes a 15.6 million tonnes per annum LNG plant on Barrow
Island 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.

Shipments from the Gorgon Project are likely to be sent to customers in
the Asia-Pacific region, of which up to 80 per cent of Chevron’s LNG from the
Gorgon project is expected to go.
