The Burrup Hub could process more gas than the entire volume extracted from the North West Shelf since startup in 1984.

We propose to create a regional LNG hub on the Burrup Peninsula, where we have been safely and reliably operating for more than 30 years. Our vision for the Burrup Hub involves the proposed development of some 20 to 25 trillion cubic feet of gross dry gas resources from Scarborough, Browse and Pluto, relying on our proven LNG facilities – Pluto LNG and the Karratha Gas Plant.

Growth and opportunities
ACIL Allen Consulting has found that our proposed Burrup Hub growth projects support thousands of jobs and billions of dollars of investment.

Burrup Hub Environmental Approvals

We are committed to understanding and managing the environmental, cultural and social impacts and opportunities of our proposed Burrup Hub growth projects. The proposed Browse and North West Shelf (NWS) Extension projects recently closed for public comment, but our documents remain available for information.

Ensuring that Karratha and surrounding communities continue to thrive
Niall Myles, Senior Vice President of the North West Shelf and Burrup Hub, outlines the benefits during the Annual Resource Overview at the Committee for the Economic Development of Australia, November 2018.

Accommodating growth in Karratha

Economic modelling suggests that up to 460 additional local Karratha operations jobs will be created or sustained on average as a part of the A$40 billion Burrup Hub transformation. To be successful, we need to balance our residential focus with the use of fly-in-fly-out workers for construction, shutdowns and certain specialist projects.

Consultation Activities

Bold, simple and smart

As we look to upgrade the Pluto LNG and North West Shelf Project facilities to support our Burrup Hub vision, we have an opportunity to integrate advanced technologies and new ways of generating power that were not available when these plants were built.
