WA could still benefit from Inpex: Moore

Mines and Petroleum Minister Norman Moore has not given up hope the state can still benefit from Inpex's multi-billion dollar Ichthys liquefied natural gas facility.

In September, Inpex chose Darwin ahead of WA to host the LNG plant which will process gas from the Browse Basin off the Kimberley coast.

ABC radio reported Mr Moore as saying that Inpex had yet to decide where to locate its supply bases for the project, and is confident the company will want to build in the Kimberley.

Should Inpex choose the Kimberley to build its supply bases, the state's economy could reap in million of dollars, Mr Moore said.

"Clearly having a supply base in Darwin is just too far away," Mr Moore said on ABC radio.
