The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource development in Australia’s history.

Plant start up and first gas is planned for mid-2015. Domestic gas is due to be delivered to the market in 2015.

The Gorgon Joint Venture Participants are supportive of the development of a fourth train.  However, the main focus remains the construction of the Foundation Project.
