Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX)  announced a natural gas discovery by its Australian subsidiary in the Exmouth Plateau area of the Carnarvon Basin, offshore Western Australia.

The Vos-1 well encountered approximately 453 feet (138 meters) of net gas pay. Located in the WA-439-P permit area approximately 186 miles (300 kilometers) from Exmouth on the Western Australian coast, the well was drilled in 4869 feet (1484 meters) of water to a depth of 12,461 feet (3798 meters).

George Kirkland, vice chairman, Chevron Corporation, 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.”

Melody Meyer, president, Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production Company, said, “Our on-going exploration success continues to add to our Australian resource base, further underpinning our drive to be a leading supplier of liquefied natural gas to world markets and natural gas to Western Australia.”

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

After my first job at a newspaper -- delivering papers for the Jackson (TN) Sun, ink was in my veins. Since the 1970's I've worked in every area of the Printing and Publishing industry, with most of that time spent in the pressroom. In 2008 I moved to Montana and purchased the Sun Times of Fairfield (fairfieldsuntimes.com). In 2011 I realized that most media outlets were either ignoring, or attacking, the growing oil and gas industry in Montana, so I started the Montana Oil Report as the source of information on this important industry.
