Chevron Australia and the Gorgon joint venture participants have announced the start of the Gorgon Stage Two drilling campaign off the northwest coast of Western Australia.
Gorgon Stage Two is an expansion of the existing subsea gas gathering network on the Chevron-led Gorgon facility and is part of the project’s original development plan.
Chevron Australia Managing Director Al Williams said the campaign will drill 11 additional wells in the Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields to maintain long-term natural gas supply to the 15.6 million tpy of LNG and domestic gas plants on Barrow Island.
“This development supports Chevron’s long-term supply of affordable, reliable and ever-cleaner energy to Western Australia and our regional neighbours,” Williams said.
