Perdaman Group is another step closer to building its $4.3 billion urea plant on the Burrup Peninsula, after the plan was unanimously approved by the regional planning body.

The development application, lodged by Cardno on behalf of Perdaman, sought permission to build a two million tonne urea plant comprising two urea trains, ammonia production facilities and a 100 megawatt gas power plant.

The engineering, procurement and construction work, which is expected to cost $2.4 billion, will support up to 2,000 jobs.

During a meeting this morning, the Regional Joint Development Assessment Panel unanimously backed the City of Karratha’s recommendation for approval, commending the company on compiling a thorough report on a project it said was of national and international significance.

However, not before amendments were made to strengthen the conditions on the submission of construction and operational management plans.

Perdaman chair Vikas Rambal told the panel the company hoped to get the project up and running as soon as possible for the community given the significant employment opportunities.

Perdaman has already signed a 20-year contract with energy giant Woodside to buy domestic gas from its Scarborough development and Victoria-based fertiliser manufacturer Incitec Pivot to purchase the urea.

Clough and Italian multinational services company Saipem were awarded the EPC contract for the project as part of a joint venture.
