Background

The Gorgon and Jansz Feed Gas Pipeline is owned and operated by Chevron.[2] The pipeline gathers gas from the Greater Gorgon gas fields and delivers it to the Barrow Island LNG Facility.[3] 'Greater Gorgon' refers to a grouping of several gas fields, including Gorgon, Chandon, Geryon, Orthrus, Maenad, Eurytion, Urania, Chrysaor, Dionysus, Jansz-Io, and West Tryal Rocks, situated in the Barrow sub-basin of the Carnarvon Basin. The Gorgon field is centered about 130 km off the northwest coast of Western Australia, where the water depth is approximately 200 m (120 ft.).

The Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields are estimated to contain 35.3 trillion cubic feet (990 billion cubic meters) of natural gas and may have a lifespan of 60 years.[4]
