Milestone for Mid West WA
Ground has been broken on a new project tipped tounlock the economic potential of Western Australia’s Mid West.
Local jobs, a boost to the local economy and domestic supply of natural gas to Western Australia are just a few of the wins as the Waitsia Gas Project Stage 2 shifts into gear.
The project is a milestone for the Mid West community
Construction alone will see 200 jobs created in the local area, with $15 million of expected expenditure during the operations phase, per year.
Expected to come online in mid-2023, the gas plant project is a joint venture between Beach Energy and Mitsui E&P Australia.
The ground breaking ceremony saw Premier Mark McGowan join the CEOs of MEPAU, Beach Energy and engineering firm Clough together with Southern Yamatji Traditional Owners, officially launching the construction project.
The local impact is already taking shape.
Indigenous-owned Garla Barna Civil & Mining (GBCM) has been awarded the bulk earthworks scope. Firms In-situ Construction in Dongara and GCo Australia in Geraldton have also been hired to do much of the during Stage 1 and the Stage 1 expansion, at a value of approximately $2 million.
Natural gas from Waitisia Stage 2 will add to the domestic supplies already flowing to Perth and the South West from Waitsia Stage 1.
Along with supplying gas to the domestic market, Stage 2 will also provide energy supplies to the world by exporting natural gas through the North West Shelf LNG facility.
