Chevron warns on LNG projects: report (Business Spectator)
Roy Krzywosinski, the local head of Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) has delivered a stark warning to Australia, saying the multi-billion dollar expansion of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects in Western Australia will require a “structural change” to the nation’s cost base, The Australian Financial Review reports. According to the newspaper, Mr Krzywosinski said regardless of which party forms the next government, securing energy investment in the future hinges on a “recalibration of government policy”. The calls were echoed by Santos Ltd chief executive officer David Knox, who called for consistent carbon and fiscal policies.

Labor rejects Chevron Gorgon claims (Business Spectator)
The federal government has dismissed claims made by Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) that Australia’s high-cost economy is threatening the future of the country’s largest energy project, Gorgon, according to The Australian Financial Review. Earlier this week, Chevron Australia managing director Roy Krzywosinski said there is a two-year window of time to correct policies and resolve industrial relations issues before future investment in Australia’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector is jeopardised. However, federal Energy Minister Gary Gray said it is the energy companies themselves, rather than the government, who are failing to control escalating labour costs.
