China Huadian Green Energy Co. Ltd. is a subsidiary of China Huadian Group, which is one of the largest state-owned power generation companies and has a leading role in gas-fired power generation in China.

The Gorgon Project is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).

The Gorgon Project combines the development of the Gorgon Field and the nearby Jansz-Io Field. Facilities being built on Barrow Island include an LNG facility with three processing units capable of producing 15.6 MTPA of LNG, a carbon dioxide injection project and a domestic gas plant.

Chevron’s subsidiaries in Australia are also developing the Wheatstone Project as an LNG and domestic gas operation near Onslow, in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The project’s initial capacity is expected to be 8.9 MTPA of LNG. The project also includes a domestic gas plant.
