US-based energy giant Chevron resumed production at the first liquefaction train of its US$54 billion Gorgon LNG project on Barrow Island in Western Australia.

“Gorgon LNG Train 1 operation resumed earlier this week,” Chevron’s spokesperson told LNG World News in an emailed statement.

Chevron halted Train 1 production in late November 2016 to “assess and address some performance variations.”

Production at Chevron’s Gorgon LNG project has been hit several times last year since it shipped its first cargo of the chilled fuel on March 21.

“Train 2 production was unaffected and we continued to produce LNG and load cargos during this time,” the statement reads.

Once in full production, the three-train plant on Barrow Island is expected to have a capacity of 15.6 million mt/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).
