US-based energy giant Chevron began restart activities at its Gorgon LNG project’s second liquefaction train.

“Restart activities are underway on Gorgon train 2. We continue to produce LNG from trains 1 and 3 and load LNG cargoes,” Chevron’s spokeswoman told LNG World News in an emailed statement on Tuesday.

No exact deadline for the Train 2 production restart has been given.

Chevron suspended production at its second liquefaction train at the Gorgon LNG plant at the end of last month to carry out maintenance to “improve the train’s capacity and reliability.”

The $54 billion Gorgon LNG project is operated by Chevron that owns a 47.3 percent stake, while other shareholders are ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).
