The West Australian reports:
Australia’s biggest resources project — the Gorgon gas plant off the Pilbara — will deliver a much-needed boost to the WA economy after oil giant Chevron gave the go-ahead for the $5.1 billion second stage of the project.
Chevron will today end a guessing game about when it would pull the trigger on stage two by announcing funding to ensure the $69 billion project can continue to produce its targeted 15.6 million tonnes of LNG a year.
Gorgon is one of the world’s biggest, costliest and most complicated energy projects.About 10,000 workers were needed to build the sub-sea infrastructure and massive processing facility on the environmentally sensitive Barrow Island, 140km west of Karratha.
So Western Australia not deciding to import their energy supply from overseas.
