Chevron is a project disaster making machine.

Gorgon has been a disaster. The decision to not install commission screens on the mixed refrigerant compressors due to schedule pressure resulted in half billion of damaged. Facility engineers would never have allowed this to happen

Meanwhile XOM and Shell operated LNG plants in Qatar, PNG, Nigeria and Malaysia are running at high reliability and have been debottlenecked to produce 10 to 15% over nameplate.

Corroding away.

Google "Angola LNG problems. Lots of good trading. $5Bn plant now headed to $14Bn. "Severe corrosion" in piping and tanks "due to strong Atlantic winds"???? Puhleeze! Every LNG plant is located on a salt water ocean or gulf. So why is ALNG the only one for riding away?

I bet the FGP engineering folks all got 2+ on their PMPs this year.

FGP another gorgon in the making. Over a billion dollars worth of change orders at the Korean module yard and they just started cutting steel on roughly 200 modules

JW doesnt care about what happens to the company that he has pawned in the last decade. It sure didnt take long to ruin something that took so long to build. But hey, if you can sink an eagle at a pro am tourney in Pebble Beach, who cares....

The next phase will be chevron customers using the unreliable lng supply to cancel their long term fuel supply contracts. JW deserves everything coming his way as a result of targeting 50 year plus employee s for layoffs to avoid paying full pensions

Megaprojects did not make Chevron. International LNG projects didn't make Chevron. Deepwater didn't make Chevron. Chevron turned their back a long time ago on the properties and projects that made the company what it used to be. Now, they chase these fantasyland dreams like a cat chasing a laser pointer. Tengiz will be the next Gorgon sized whopper of a project. These fantasyland glamour shot projects have destroyed the company (absolutely no way to deny this fact). There will be nothing left in the next couple of years when they are out of things to sell.

I also heard about the problem involving poor welding. It's one thing after another. Damn, Chevron just can't seem to pull this one off.

by | Post ID:

We may have been better off bringing in Filipinos for all the welding. Plus they wouldn't go on strike every month for bigger donghas and more time off to get glassed at the pubs in Busselton.

by | Post ID:

Don't tell anyone I said this but here is the truth. Reliable inside information. All these shutdown are due to poor welding. They have a lot of spots where the welding are cracking and collapsing. Talking about QA amd major f---up

, Allow me to translate that corporate statement into layman terminology: "We're going broke in Australia".

The supposedly best operator out there. According to chevroids, anyway.

Production at Gorgon Train Two is being temporarily suspended for a planned turnaround to enhance the train's reliability in alignment with previously arranged strategies, a Chevron spokesman said in an email statement without saying when Chevron planned to restart the production line. This is from Reuters news. What a bunch of corporate gobbledygook nonsense. Can anyone here translate that corporate statement? The only thing that is clear is that train 2 is shut down (again) for an indefinite amount of time. Another OE moment for Chevron and JW.
