US-based energy giant Chevron said it has completed planned modifications on the second production unit at its Gorgon liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant on Barrow Island in Western Australia.

To remind, Chevron’s vice president and chief financial officer, Pat Yarrington said during the company’s earnings call that Chevron planned to shut down the second train during the month of May to replicate performance improvement modifications that the company had made in the other two Gorgon trains.

“The planned pit stop on Gorgon Train 2 that we flagged on our earnings call in late April has been completed safely,” a Chevron spokesman told LNG World News on Thursday.

Gorgon comprises a three-train, 15.6 million tonnes per annum LNG facility and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to supply 300 terajoules of gas per day to Western Australia.

The first LNG cargo departed Barrow Island in March 2016 and domestic gas supply to the Western Australian market started in December 2016.

The Gorgon project is operated by Chevron’s Australian unit that has a 47.3 percent share in the giant LNG project.

ExxonMobil and Shell hold 25 percent, each, in the project, while Osaka Gas has 1.25 percent, Tokyo Gas 1 percent and JERA owns a 0.417 percent share in the joint venture.
