The Project is under construction on Barrow Island, around 60 kilometres off the northwest coast of Western Australia.
It includes a three-train, 15.6 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to provide 300 terajoules of gas per day to Western Australia.
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.
