The Gorgon Project, currently in its third year of construction, is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single-resource natural gas project in Australia's history. The project will develop the Gorgon and Jansz gas fields, located within the greater Gorgon area, about 130 kilometres off the northwest coast of Western Australia. The gas will be processed in a 15 million tonne per annum liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant currently being constructed on Barrow Island. Barrow Island, a Class A nature reserve, is located 80 kilometres off the coast of Western Australia, and about 1 200 kilometres north of Perth. The LNG will be offloaded onto LNG tankers, for transport to international markets, via a four kilometre long loading jetty. The domestic gas will be piped to the Western Australian mainland.
