The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource development in Australia's history.
The Project is developing the Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields located within the Greater Gorgon area, between 130 and 200 kilometres off the northwest coast of Western Australia. It includes the construction of a three-train, 15.6 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on Barrow Island and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to provide 300 terajoules per day of gas to Western Australia.
Gorgon LNG will be off loaded via a 4.2 kilometre long loading jetty for transport to international markets. The domestic gas will be piped to the Western Australian mainland. The first LNG cargo will be loaded in the first quarter 2015. Domestic gas will be delivered to the market in 2015.
The Gorgon Joint Venture is investing approximately $2 billion in the design and construction of the world’s largest commercial-scale CO2 injection facility to reduce the Project’s overall greenhouse gas emissions by between 3.4 and 4.1 million tonnes per year. The Australian Government has committed $60 million to the Gorgon Carbon Dioxide Injection Project as part of the Low Emissions Technology Demonstration Fund.
The Gorgon Project is operated by an Australian subsidiary of Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).
Barrow Island is located around 60 kilometres off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

BENEFITS OF PROJECTCONNECT FOR THE GORGON PROJECT
ProjectConnect provides suppliers and contractors with an understanding of the Gorgon Project work scopes that are soon to be tendered or are already out to bid. PDFs attached to the Gorgon Project packages provide information on the scope of work involved and may assist suppliers and contractors to better position themselves for work at the first tier (full package) or lower tier (components of package) levels.
Companies registered under Gorgon General Registrations will be advised on Project progress via the regular Project electronic newsletter.
Gorgon Project information and work packages on ProjectConnect are maintained by Gorgon contracts and procurement personnel. These personnel are able to access the specific package registrations and company profiles to assist in the identification of potential suitable Australian companies for invitation to prequalify.
The first tier registrations on the specific packages are reviewed by Industry Capability Network Western Australia (ICNWA), together with information from other sources of industry capability, in providing advice directly to the Gorgon Project team on potential Australian suppliers and contractors.
Bidders and successful contractors for Gorgon Project work packages are also encouraged to utilise ICNWA to obtain similar advice on potential Australian sub contractors and suppliers. ICNWA reviews the components of package registrations (again in conjunction with other sources) in providing that advice.
Upon award of a contract, the name and contact details of the successful contractor are published on ProjectConnect to further facilitate contact with Australian industry. Companies registered on ProjectConnect at the part package level are automatically sent this information about the package for which they have registered. The successful contractor may also be given access to the components of package registrations for their work package.
