The Gorgon Project – our liquefied natural gas (LNG) and domestic gas joint venture located on Barrow Island – will help stimulate economic growth and generate energy security for Australia for many decades to come.
We are also the operator of the Wheatstone Project – a major LNG and domestic gas facility located at a site near Onslow in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
And for more than 45 years we have been operating Australia’s largest oil field on Barrow Island – which has retained its Class A Nature Reserve status due to our commitment to environmental excellence.
Partnering to Meet the World’s Energy Needs
Chevron holds an equal one-sixth interest in the North West Shelf Venture where, along with the other participants, we have been providing domestic gas to Western Australia for 30 years and LNG to Asian customers for more than 25 years.
Developing Energy for the Future
The world’s demand for energy is increasing, with demand for LNG expected to almost double over the next 10 to 15 years. Most of this growth will occur in Asia – primarily China and India – but other customers are entering the market. There are now 29 countries globally purchasing LNG.
Globally, we are devising new and better ways to deliver oil and gas – and emerging energy sources.
Chevron is also a significant investor in exploration offshore northwest Australia and in the Bight Basin off the South Australian Coast.
Our Perth-based Global Technology Centre provides technology support and solutions to the company’s operations in Australia and around the world.
Natural Gas – Providing an Efficient, Economical Energy Source
Our location in Australia also means that we’re well positioned to meet the world’s escalating demand for natural gas and we have our own Gas Supply and Trading team working from Perth, Western Australia, in the same time zone as much of South East Asia.
The Chevron Way
But no matter what the project or focus area, there is one constant thread to everything we do – our commitment to working The Chevron Way
At the heart of The Chevron Way
is our vision to be the global energy company most admired for its people, partnership and performance.
