Visit to Karratha with the Prime Minister
April 11, 2016
Today I visited Karratha with Prime Minister Turnbull, Minister Josh Frydenberg and Melissa Price MP, we joined Premier Barnett to officially mark the completion of the Gorgon LNG construction project on Barrow Island.
The Gorgon LNG project is central to both Australia and WA’s future. Australia will provide about 40% of both China and Japan’s LNG imports, and 25% of Korea’s by 2020.
Importantly, it is also a fine example of how resource and energy development and environmental preservation can go hand-in-hand.
