    Chevron makes natural gas discovery offshore Western Australia

    Chevron

    Chevron Corp.’s Australian subsidiary has made a natural gas discovery in the Exmouth Plateau area of the Carnarvon Basin, offshore Western Australia.

    The Vos-1 well encountered approximately 453 feet of net gas pay. Located in the WA-439-P permit area approximately 186 miles from Exmouth on the Western Australian coast, the well was drilled in 4869 feet of water to a depth of 12,461 feet.

    George Kirkland, vice chairman, Chevron Corp., said, “The find at Vos-1 represents our twelfth offshore discovery in Australia since mid-2009. Our successful drilling program offshore Western Australia demonstrates Chevron’s global exploration capability.”

    The discovery follows the Acme West-1 well net gas finding announced by Chevron in October.

    Chevron’s Australian subsidiary is the operator of WA-439-P and holds a 50% interest, with Shell Development (Australia) Pty Ltd holding the remaining 50%.
