where was this date sourced from? Please table that data.
(2) Of these, how many will remain
beyond the construction phase?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and
Innovation advises the following.
Burrup hub involves a number of projects, including expanding the Pluto LNG
facility's capacity, extending the life of the North West Shelf LNG
facility and bringing in gas from new sources including the Scarborough and
projections/estimates for these projects are typically provided by the
companies. Based on information currently available, the Scarborough and Browse
projects could generate about 5 000 construction jobs and 1 320 operational
