Long Island Point Plant update

March 2022 update from LIP Manager, David McCord


Long Island Point Plant update

Safety is a core value at Esso Australia and every day, we all strive to ensure a work environment where Nobody Gets Hurt. 

Maintaining safe operations is not just a priority for Esso, but also for our wider workforce, including the multitude of contractors that we engage and work closely with. 

Last month, our team at Long Island Point celebrated our contractor’s safety commitment with Sam Jeffs, of the Oceaneering team, who was awarded an Oceaneering “Do Things Right” award, which recognises his impressive attentiveness onsite.

Sam is a valued member of the Long Island Point team, and over the years he has remained vigilant and on the lookout for possible hazards in the field. He consistently looks to make the work site a safer place for his peers, other contractors on site and the client. 

It’s great to have full confidence in our team as the plant excitingly takes the next steps to execute our ethane-generation project. We are working to construct ethane-fired power generators that will be capable of converting excess ethane into 35-40 megawatts of electricity to power Victorian homes.

In addition to providing power to the community, these generators will reduce flaring and help to ensure we can maintain our reliable supply of natural gas and natural gas liquids across the east coast.
