21.03.16. Chevron’s first shipment of LNG from the Gorgon Project has departed Barrow Island off the northwest coast of Western Australia. The cargo will be delivered to one of Chevron’s foundation buyers, Chubu Electric Power, for delivery into Japan.
“Departure of the first cargo from the Gorgon Project is a milestone in our commitment to be a reliable LNG provider for customers across the Asia-Pacific region,” said Mike Wirth, executive vice president, Chevron Midstream and Development. “This is also important for our investors as we begin to generate revenue from a project we expect will operate for decades to come.”
The LNG cargo will be delivered by the Asia Excellence, one of Chevron’s new LNG carriers. Chevron Shipping Company is in the final stages of its largest shipbuilding and fleet modernisation programme in recent history, which includes the addition of six new LNG carriers to its operated fleet.
