ACIL Allen was engaged by Woodside to undertake a detailed economic impact assessment of the activities associated with the Burrup Hub. ACIL Allen found that the Burrup Hub is expected to result in a significant direct contribution to the economy, through capital and operational spending, employment, taxation and royalty payments, and exports.
Building another 30 years of opportunities for the regions we call home.
Our proposed Burrup Hub activities are expected to deliver significant long-term benefits to WA’s economy, including through employment and energy supply.
The Pilbara is more than the heartbeat of our operations, it’s where our story lives.
We’ve grown with the region over the last 30 years, helping to build an even greater place to live and work by buying and supplying locally, as well as investing in community infrastructure, education, training, jobs and new industries.
In 2018, 84% of our Australian spend - $3.3 billion - was with WA suppliers, supporting local businesses.
Our growth projects involve the proposed development of an additional 20-25 trillion cubic feet of gas resources from the Scarborough and Browse fields off the north-west coast of Western Australia, processed through our existing world-class onshore facilities on the Burrup Peninsula. Consultants ACIL Allen estimate these Burrup Hub activities could create an average of more than 4,000 jobs each year.
We’ll be energising WA for decades to come.
We expect our proposed growth projects will create an average of more than 4,000 jobs each year.
An important part of our growth projects is continuing to foster sustainable supply chains, delivering value while enhancing positive outcomes for stakeholders and the communities where we are active. A total of A$5.01 billion was spent across 2,476 suppliers in 2018, with the majority of spend being with Australian-based suppliers.
