Western Australia LNG Project Expects Full Trains Online in September
Chevron plans to restart Train 2 of its Gorgon liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Western Australia in early September, following a planned maintenance.
Reuters cited a company spokesperson who said scheduled mechanical work on the train was completed and repair work on its propane heat exchangers is underway. Planned maintenance began 23 May with restart expected on 11 July, but weld quality issues were discovered on the heat exchangers.
Trains 1 and 3 are still producing LNG, and the company is meeting its contractual commitments with customers.
The three trains combined can produce 15.6 mtpa of LNG. In 2019, average total daily production was at 2.3 Bcf of natural gas and 6,000 bbl of condensate.
Chevron said in June it was committed to the Gorgon LNG project after announcing plans to divest its 16.7% stake in Australia’s North West Shelf LNG joint venture. The company said it also remains committed to its Wheatstone LNG project in Western Australia.
