The newly approved Jansz-Io Compression project calls for constructing and installing infrastructure linking the offshore Janz-Io gas field to the Gorgon complex. Chevron’s fellow Gorgon Project owners include ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM), Shell (NYSE: RDS.A), Osaka Gas (TYO: 9532), Tokyo Gas (OTCMKTS: TKGSY), and JERA.
