Industry leaders and the State Government have welcomed Chevron's decision to proceed with the second stage of the multi-billion-dollar Gorgon project expansion off Western Australia's north-west coast.

The latest phase of the large-scale gas project, which is situated 150 kms off the WA coast, north of Onslow, is estimated to cost several billion dollars and create hundreds of jobs in the resources sector.

It will include new wells in the Gorgon and Jansz-lo fields, as well as drilling, sub-sea installation and pipe-laying while the major gas sub-sea expansion is underway.
