Perdaman seeks to play an active and supportive role in the local community and believes that its Burrup Urea plant represents a significant opportunity for the local community, regional Western Australia and for the nation as a whole.
The US$4.0 billion Burrup Urea plant will generate around 2,000 jobs during the three-year construction phase of the project and 200 permanent jobs during plant operations.
Where possible Perdaman intends to source products and services locally. It is anticipated that the workforce employed on the project will live in the surrounding local communities including Karratha.
Moving forward, Perdaman anticipates that the Burrup Urea plant will generate in excess of US$600 million per annum in export earnings for Western Australia following the first shipment.
Perdaman is seeking to make a long-term investment into the Burrup region and has commenced a process to inform the community and all key stakeholders about the project to ensure open communication and understanding of the project as it moves forward.
