The downstream component includes the LNG facility on Barrow Island.

About the project

In October 2007, the Australian Federal Minister for the Environment Malcolm Turnbull issued Australian Government approval for the Gorgon Development Proposal, following four years of rigorous State and Federal assessment.

The approval was the consequence of extensive community consultation, the input of a wide range of local and global scientific expertise and the experience Chevron Australia has gained from operating Australia’s largest and oldest onshore oilfield on Barrow Island for more than 40 years.

The Gorgon Project is one of Australia’s single biggest developments with an estimated resource base of more than 40 trillion cubic feet of gas and a nominal development life of around 60 years.

The Gorgon Project proposes to build a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production facility on Barrow Island, 70kms off the Pilbara coast of Western Australia.

The Project is being pursued by the Australian subsidiaries of three leading international energy companies Chevron, ExxonMobil and Shell.

Chevron is operator of the Project with a 50% interest, and ExxonMobil and Shell each hold 25%.

Companies that have previously registered their interest for packages that have been updated will not need to re-register.
