Chevron Corporation has commenced its carbon dioxide injection program at the Gorgon LNG project, two years behind schedule. The initiative is expected to reduce Gorgon’s carbon emissions by about 40 per cent, with some 100 million tonnes of carbon dioxide to be injected into rocks beneath Barrow Island over the life of the $US54bn ($79.74bn) project. Conservation Council of Western Australia director Piers Verstegen says Chevron should offset the carbon dioxide that it has emitted since March 2017, when the carbon dioxide injection program had been slated to begin.
