Chevron Says Gorgon LNG Export Plant Output To Resume Shortly
July 20 (Reuters) - Production should resume shortly at Chevron Corp's $54 billion liquefied natural gas (LNG) Gorgon export plant in Australia, a company spokesman said, following a longer-than-expected shutdown caused by a leak.
Start-up activities at the plant are under way, Chevron spokesman Kent Robertson said in an email.
After the shutdown on July 1, Chevron initially said production would restart in the "coming week". The plant has exported just two cargoes since its launch in March.
According to a shipping schedule published by Chevron Australia prior to the leak, Gorgon was due to export another cargo on July 9-11 aboard the Asia Excellence tanker.
That vessel is anchored in the vicinity of the plant.
