Chevron Australia Resumes Full LNG Production at Gorgon Facility

(Reuters) — Chevron has resumed full liquefied natural gas (LNG) production at its Gorgon Gas facility in Australia, after a mechanical fault caused one production train to go offline in late April.

"Chevron Australia has resumed full LNG production from the Gorgon Gas Facility with the safe re-start of a production train on Wednesday, May 29, following an outage," a company spokesperson said on Friday.

The production train went offline on April 30 due to a turbine fault.

Gorgon exports LNG to customers across Asia and has a domestic gas plant with the capacity to supply 300 terajoules of gas per day to Western Australia.

It has three LNG trains, or production units, with a total capacity of 15.6 million metric tons per year.

Chevron owns 47% stake in and operates the Gorgon project. It is co-owned by ExxonMobil, Shell and Japanese utilities Osaka Gas, Tokyo Gas and JERA.
