The Chevron Australia operated Gorgon Project is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource development in Australia's history. GS2 is an upgrade to the Gorgon Project's existing subsea petroleum facilities. Further wells and subsea infrastructure are to be added to the existing Gorgon and Jansz-Io Fields to maintain future gas supply for the Project.
The following is currently included in the scope of GS2:
- Wells and subsea infrastructure through Gorgon main production pipeline (infill development of Gorgon Manifold 1 and development of Gorgon Manifold 4); and
- Wells and subsea infrastructure through Jansz-Io main production pipeline (development of Jansz-Io Drill Centre 3 manifold).
The Gorgon Project is operated by Chevron Australia 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 JERA (0.417 percent).
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.
