US-based energy giant Chevron has resumed production at the first liquefaction train at its multi-billion Gorgon LNG plant on Barrow Island in Western Australia following a shutdown earlier this month.

“Production from Gorgon LNG Train 1 has resumed,” Chevron’s spokesperson told LNG World News in an emailed statement on Thursday.

“Trains 2 and 3 are running normally, and we continue to ship cargoes,” the spokesperson said.

Chevron closed the first Train on May 12 saying the cause of the closure was a failure of a flow measurement device.

The company previously expected the unit to be down about one month.

Chevron has in March started-up the third and the last Train at the Gorgon facility that has a total capacity of 15.6 million mt/year.

The troubled $54 billion LNG project has experienced several production interruptions since it shipped its first cargo in March last year.

The 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).
