The Gorgon Gas project off WA's north-west coast has released millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere instead of injecting it underground as environmental approvals required, because of technical problems with its gas injection system.

由于气体注入系统的技术问题,西澳海岸的戈尔贡气体项目已经向大气释放了数百万吨二氧化碳,而不是像环境许可要求的那样将其注入地下。


The conditions stated that Chevron had to “implement all practicable means” to reinject all carbon dioxide removed during gas processing into deep aquifers below the island.

条件规定,雪佛龙必须“实施一切可行的手段”,将天然气加工过程中除去的所有二氧化碳重新注入岛下的深水含水层。

The minimum requirement was 80 percent, calculated on a five-year rolling average. If the amount fell significantly below 80 per cent Chevron had to report this and take steps to “offset” these emissions.

最低要求为80%,按五年平均滚动率计算。 如果数额显着下降到80%以下,雪佛龙不得不报告这一情况,并采取措施“抵消”这些排放量。


The Barrow Island operation had still not yet injected any carbon dioxide underground, West Australian Environment Minister Stephen Dawson confirmed in Parliament on Tuesday in response to a question from Greens MP Robin Chapple.

巴罗岛行动尚未在地下注入任何二氧化碳,西澳大利亚州环境部长Stephen Dawson星期二在议会证实,回应绿党议员Robin Chapple的问题。


He could not confirm the total carbon dioxide that had instead been released into the atmosphere.

他无法确认相反排放到大气中的二氧化碳总量。


He had asked the WA Environmental Protection Authority to inquire, and clarify the start date of the injection system.

他曾要求西澳环境保护局进行调查,并澄清注射系统的开始日期。


Gas has been flowing from Barrow Island for around 18 months - since December 2016.

自2016年12月以来,天然气已从巴罗岛流出大约18个月。


Chevron estimated in 2015 that the plant would produce more than 5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.

雪佛龙公司在2015年估计该工厂每年将生产超过500万吨的二氧化碳。


But Chevron has advised government regulators that problems with the $2.5 billion injection system meant carbon dioxide would not be reinjected any earlier than the December quarter of 2018.

但雪佛龙已向政府监管机构提出建议,即25亿美元的注入系统问题意味着二氧化碳不会在2018年12月季度之前重新注入。


A spokeswoman said Chevron welcomed the Minister's request to “clarify” the start date on the environmental conditions but did not respond to a question on how much carbon dioxide had been released.

一位女发言人说,雪佛龙欢迎部长要求来“澄清”环境条件的开始日期,但没有回应关于释放二氧化碳的问题。


“Our focus is on the safe commissioning and start-up of the Carbon Dioxide Injection Project and achieving a high percentage of injection over the 40-year life of the Gorgon Project,” she said.

她说:“我们的重点是二氧化碳注入项目的安全调试和启动,并在Gorgon项目的40年使用寿命中实现高注入率。”


“We have been keeping the relevant government agencies informed as to the progress of the commissioning of the Gorgon Carbon Dioxide Injection Project.”

“我们一直在向政府相关机构通报Gorgon二氧化碳注入项目启动的进展情况。”

“Not one tonne of reservoir CO2 removed in gas processing has been injected underground. Industry members are not expecting improvement on this any time soon,” Mr Chapple said.

“在天然气处理过程中,没有一公吨的二氧化碳被注入地下。 业界人士预计短期内不会有任何改善,“Chapple先生说。


When Chevron on April 15 announced the planned $5.1 billion expansion of the Gorgon project Premier Mark McGowan dismissed environmental concerns.

当雪佛龙公司于4月15日宣布,计划以51亿美元扩建戈尔贡项目时,总理麦Mark McGowan解除了对环境的担忧。


"It's offshore and in very deep water. When we put Gorgon on Barrow we put in place the tightest regulations in the world," he said.

“它在近海和深水中,当我们把戈尔贡放在巴罗时,我们在世界上制定了最严格的规定,”他说。
