According to energy writer Nigel Wilson, Chevron Australia managing director Jay Johnson was moving to head the oil and gas giant’s Eurasia strategic business unit, based in Kazakhstan, reported The Australian (26/9/2007, p.40).

Chevron begs Feds for Gorgon approval: Chevron global president David O’Reilly earlier this month discussed Gorgon’s environmental issues with federal ministers in Canberra, stressing how important the project was to Chevron’s global aspirations, including its potential contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in customer countries.

Feds likely to OK Woodside Burrup LNG: Turnbull was also understood to be preparing to sign environmental approvals for Woodside’s $12 billion Pluto LNG development, despite a late move by an Aboriginal group in the Pilbara to block the project under the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Heritage Protection Act. The Wong-Goo-Tt-Oo native title group wants Woodside to be barred from the approved site for Pluto on the Burrup Peninsula because construction of the plant would mean the relocation of rock art.

Pre-election decisions: The Pluto site has already been exempted from inclusion in the heritage listing of parts of the Burrup. Both approvals are expected to be signed before the federal Government goes into caretaker mode for the federal election.

Chevron job shift: Roy Krzywosinski, currently president and general manager of Chevron, will become managing director in Australia from January.
