New Pilbara gas processing welcomed

The WA Government has welcomed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Woodside and Perdaman that will pave the way for more gas processing in the Pilbara.

The MoU is a major step towards a new urea plant in the Pilbara, which will help to create new job opportunities for Karratha and the region.

The WA Government has worked with both parties to help support the MoU to achieve this outcome.

Perdaman has estimated the new plant will create up to 2,000 jobs during construction and 200 ongoing jobs.

The WA Government is committed to finding the balance between the environment and economic development, including appropriate management of the industrial development on existing zoned industrial land.
