The Gorgon plant has many leading design features that aim to maximize energy efficiency and minimize greenhouse gas emissions. In the stationary operation, gorgon is expected to have the lowest greenhouse gas emissions intensity of any LNG project in Australia. Connecting our LNG projects to the market requires a tireless focus on safe and reliable transportation. Most of Chevron`s LNG production from Australia is committed under binding long-term agreements with major distribution companies in Asia, with the remainder sold in the Asian spot LNG market. Safe and reliable deliveries of LNG loads help meet our customers` growing electricity needs. An Australian subsidiary of ExxonMobil has signed long-term purchase and sale contracts with Petronet LNG Limited of India and PetroChina International Company Limited for the supply of LNG from the Gorgon project. The agreement with Petronet LNG is for the supply of approximately 1.5 Mtpa LNG over a 20-year period, while the agreement with PetroChina is for the delivery of approximately 2.25 Mtpa over a 20-year period. Together, these two purchase and sale agreements involve ExxonMobil`s subsidiary in the LNG project 15 Mtpa Gorgon LNG.

The project received interim environmental approvals from the Western Australian government in September 2007 and from the Federal Minister of the Environment[6] [7] in September 2007, after being approved in September 2003 by the Government of Western Australia for the limited use of Barrow Island. [8] Project proponents then submitted revised plans to cover an extension of the project size. The final environmental approval was received by the State Government on August 11, 2009. [9] On August 26, 2009, the Federal Minister of the Environment announced that the extended project at Barrow Island had been approved under certain conditions. [10] In accordance with the 2009 Environmental Impact Statement, 18 wells were to supply gas to the northwest coast of Barrow Island through underwater collection systems and pipelines, and then an underground distribution system to gas processing and liquefaction facilities on the southeast coast of the island. The facility is expected to consist of 3 liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains capable of producing a nominal capacity of 5.2 million tonnes per year (MTPA). [2] [Update] The Gorgon Project is under construction at Barrow Island, approximately 60 kilometres from the northwest coast of Western Australia. It includes the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant on Barrow Island, capable of producing 15.6 million tonnes of LNG per year, and a domestic gas plant that will supply 300 terajoules of gas per day to Western Australia.
