Chevron-Makes-Gas-Discovery-Offshore-W_-Australia

English to come

Jag har plockat upp denna nyhet om nya gasfyndigheter till havs utanför västra Australien. Tanken är att gasen skall frysas ner så att den blir flytande. Man anger inte volymen på detta fynd men texten längs upp på figuren anger att 21 fynd från 2009 tillsammans motsvarar “10 trillion cubic feet of resources”. Omräknat till oljeekvivalenter blir det 1900 miljoner fat. Vi får se hur betydelsefullt fynden är då man förfandrar resurser till reserver.

Nu lämnar jag möjligheter för min översättare Michael Lardelli från Australien att göra någon kommentar.

Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today announced further drilling success by its Australian subsidiary in the Exmouth Plateau area, located in the Carnarvon Basin.

The Elfin-1 exploration discovery well encountered approximately 132 feet (40 meters) of net gas pay in the upper Mungaroo sands. It is Chevron’s 21st discovery offshore western Australia since mid-2009.

Located in the WA-268-P permit area, the well is located approximately 106 miles (170 kilometers) northwest of Barrow Island and was drilled in 3,570 feet (1,088 meters) of water to a total depth of 11,909 feet (3,630 meters).

“Elfin-1 is a demonstration of our continued industry-leading exploration success,” said George Kirkland, vice chairman, Chevron Corporation. “These discoveries build a platform for future growth for Chevron.”

Melody Meyer, president, Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production Company said “This remarkable series of exploration discoveries in the Carnarvon Basin has created a robust gas portfolio in Australia. The growth of this portfolio positions the company to supply future LNG demand in the Asia Pacific region.”

Chevron Australia is the operator of WA-268-P with a 50 percent interest while Shell Development Australia and Mobil Australia Resources each hold a 25 percent interest.
