Chevron: first module for Gorgon third LNG train delivered

Oil and gas giant Chevron informed that the first module required for the third train of its USD 54 billion Gorgon LNG project has been delivered to Barrow Island.

The Gorgon project, which includes the construction of a 15.6 million tonne per annum LNG plant, is now more than 90 percent complete, Chevron said in the latest project report.

Delivery of modules required for LNG train 2 continues with 16 of 17 modules on their foundations, according to the report.

Chevron also completed hydrotesting activities on the four monoethylene glycol tanks required for Train 1 start-up.

Development of the carbon dioxide injection project is also progressing with drilling activities complete on all nine injection wells.

Construction has also started on the surface facilities at the injection drill centres and the CO2 compressor module has been placed on its foundations.

Chevron said it is on schedule to have Gorgon startup in the third quarter of this year and first gas before the end of the year.
