AMWU says Gorgon is a ‘disaster waiting to happen’ and wants it shut down
Unions are calling for operations at Chevron’s Gorgon natural gas project to be shut down while cracks in propane kettles are investigated.
The Australian Manufacturing Workers Union claims thousands of cracks have appeared in the kettle’s heat exchangers posing a significant risk.
