Production at Train Two of Chevron’s Gorgon LNG project has restarted after a brief outage last week.

Chevron told Reuters earlier this week that production at Train Two restarted on Sunday after a brief maintenance outage.

Chevron, the operator of the Gorgon project, told Reuters last week that production at Train Two was suspended for minor maintenance work.

LNG cargo loading from Train One was not interrupted by the maintenance work.

Construction on Train Three has been completed.

Chevron told Reuters that it is “well into start-up and commissioning” for Train Three.

The company has not yet disclosed a start-up date for Train Three.

The Gorgon LNG project has seen several outages since starting up last March.

Operations at the project’s Train One was restarted in early January after a month-long outage.

Exports from Gorgon were temporarily halted about one month after production began due to mechanical issues with the propane refrigerant circuit on Train One.

A gas leak forced Chevron to temporarily halt production at Gorgon in July 2016.

Production at Train One was briefly halted in early November for minor maintenance work.

The project is supplied from the Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields, located within the Greater Gorgon area, between 80 miles and 136 miles off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

The project is operated by Chevron Australia with a 47.3 percent stake.
