Chevron’s unit in Australia is working to return to full production from its Gorgon LNG plant in Western Australia following an electrical incident affecting one of the plant’s three trains.
The Gorgon LNG plant on Barrow Island has three trains and a production capacity of some 15.6 mtpa.
“The incident occurred about 1.30am AWST on Tuesday, October 31, in a substation which provides power supply,” a Chevron Australia spokesperson told LNG Prime on Thursday.
“Personnel were not in the substation at the time of the incident, and no one was harmed,” the spokesperson said.
According to Chevron’s spokesperson, the production train is currently producing at “about 80 percent capacity.”
“Domestic gas and the remaining two LNG production trains at Gorgon are unaffected and are producing at full rates,” the spokesperson said.
Chevron and its workers at the Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG terminals recently agreed on new labor agreements following lengthy negotiations between Chevron and unions representing the workers.
In September, Chevron also resumed full production at its 8.9 mtpa Wheatstone LNG terminal near Onslow after a fault reduced about 25 percent of the plant’s production.
