Chevron Australia Announces Gorgon Commissioning Milestone
Chevron Australia Pty Ltd advised it has commenced the cool-down of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) export system, following the recent arrival of a commissioning LNG cargo at the Chevron-operated Gorgon natural gas plant on Barrow Island, Western Australia.

The Chevron-operated LNG vessel, Asia Excellence, delivered the commissioning cargo to cool-down the LNG storage and loading facilities ahead of the first LNG export cargo planned in early 2016.

Chevron Australian Managing Director Roy Krzywosinski said: “The commissioning cargo is essential for the final testing of critical systems and to efficiently cool down the plant prior to the start of LNG production. As the largest single-resource development in Australia’s history, this is a significant milestone for Gorgon and is a testament to outstanding team work by our workforce, contractors and partners.”

“Gorgon will be a long-term supplier of natural gas to our customers in the Asia-Pacific region and in Australia, delivering energy security as well as significant long-term economic benefits to Australia for decades to come,” said Krzywosinski.

Chevron is developing the Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields, located within the Greater Gorgon area, between 130 and 220 kilometres off the northwest coast of Western Australia. It includes the construction of a 15.6 million tonne per annum (MTPA) LNG plant on Barrow Island and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to supply 300 terajoules of gas per day to Western Australia.

Gorgon LNG will be off-loaded via a 2.1-kilometre loading jetty for transport to international customers. The domestic gas will be piped to customers on the Western Australian mainland.

LNG is natural gas that has been cooled to -162 degrees Celsius (-260°F), the point where it condenses to a liquid. Liquefaction reduces the volume by approximately 600 times, making it more economical to transport between continents in specially designed ocean vessels.

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).
