US-based energy giant Chevron said work has begun on further development at the Gorgon LNG project on Barrow Island offshore Western Australia. 

“Future development phases at the Chevron-operated Gorgon project have always been anticipated to maintain gas supply,” Chevron spokesman told LNG World News in an emailed statement.

The work will initially include additional wells and subsea infrastructure at the Gorgon and Jansz-Io fields.

“Front-end engineering design activities have commenced,” on the Gorgon stage two development with the aim to provide certainty for when the project partners consider a final investment decision.

The statement further adds that Chevron’s priority remains on the completion and operation of the Gorgon foundation project.

It is also worth mentioning that the company recently secured the right to explore an area off the Western Australian coast for the next six years in a gas-rich part of the Northern Carnarvon Basin very close to the Gorgon gas project.

At the end of January, Chevron said the construction on Gorgon LNG Train 3 was completed and the company is currently commissioning the last unit and expects first LNG early in the second quarter of this year.

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).
