Chevron has announced that its subsidiary Chevron Australia Pty Ltd., as operator, and the Gorgon joint venture (JV) participants will proceed with the approximately US$4 billion (AUS$6 billion) Jansz-Io Compression (J-IC) project offshore Western Australia.
A modification of the existing Gorgon development, J-IC will involve the construction and installation of a 27 000-t normally unattended floating Field Control Station (FCS), approximately 6500 t of subsea compression infrastructure and a 135 km submarine power cable linked to Barrow Island.
Construction and installation activities are estimated to take approximately five years to complete.
J-IC follows the Gorgon Stage 2 project, which is nearing completion of the installation phase, to supply gas to the Gorgon plant from four new Jansz-Io and seven new Gorgon wells.
The Gorgon Project is a JV between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.333%, ExxonMobil (25%), Shell (25%), Osaka Gas (1.25%), Tokyo Gas (1%) and JERA (0.417%).
Nigel Hearne, Chevron Eurasia Pacific Exploration and Production president, said: “Using world-leading subsea compression technology, J-IC is positioned to maintain gas supply from the Jansz-Io field to the three existing LNG trains and domestic gas plant on Barrow Island.”
“This will maintain an important source of clean-burning natural gas to customers that will enable energy transitions in countries across the Asia Pacific region.”
