Chevron Australia says full LNG production resumed at Gorgon facility

SINGAPORE (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 total capacity of 15.6 metric MMtpy.

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.
