Chevron says third Gorgon LNG train returns to full production

The third liquefaction train at Chevron’s giant Gorgon LNG plant in Western Australia has returned to full production, Chevron told LNG Prime on Wednesday.

A Chevron spokesperson said that Gorgon Train 3 had returned to full production “over the past few days.”

The spokesperson did not provide any additional information.

Earlier this month, Chevron said that an electrical incident occurred on October 31 in a substation which provides power supply, resulting in the plant’s third train to produce at 80 percent capacity.

Chevron said domestic gas and the remaining two LNG production trains at the Gorgon plant were unaffected.

The Gorgon LNG plant on Barrow Island has three trains and a production capacity of some 15.6 mtpa.

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.
