Chevron’s Gorgon LNG project moving forward

Chevron’s US$ 54 billion Gorgon LNG project in Australia is steadily progressing towards first LNG production in 2015.

Project execution activities on the massive LNG project are now 87 percent complete. Work continues to connect all Train 1 and common modules required for first gas, Chevron said in a project update.

According to Chevron, the first Gorgon tank is now ready for LNG and hydrotesting activities are complete on the second tank and all four condensate tanks.

Seven of the nine carbon dioxide injection wells have been drilled on Barrow Island where the 15.6 mtpa export plant is located. Installation of the 7 km pipeline is complete, with preparations
under way to commence hydrotesting activities.

The 2.1 km LNG loading wharf is also complete, except for the loading arms.

As part of the Gorgon upstream scope, seven of the ten wells at the Jansz-Io field and seven of the eight wells at the Gorgon offshore field are ready to produce, Chevron said.

The Jansz-Io field is now connected to the LNG plant following the final tie-in welds between the offshore and cross-island pipeline systems.

The Gorgon pipeline system is being prepared for a similar tie-in, Chevron added.
