Chevron has marked a significant milestone at its 80 per cent completed Gorgon liquefied natural gas project, receiving the final module required for its first gas processing train on Barrow Island.

Chevron announced today the final module, which weighs more than 2,500 average sized cars, had been delivered.

It completes the delivery of all 21 modules required for the $US54 billion project’s first gas processing train.

In the upstream part of the Gorgon project 18 wells are expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Gorgon is due to start producing gas next year.

Chevron’s $US29 billion Wheatstone LNG project near Onslow is about 33 per cent completed.

Last week, Japanese group Inpex announced its Ichthys LNG project near Darwin was 50 per cent complete.

Construction on the $US34 billion plant began in April 2012.

Ichthys is due to start first production in 2016.
