Woodside to spend $400m on Fifo camp

Woodside Petroleum is hoping to win state government backing for a new 700-bed fly-in, fly-out camp at Karratha, after selecting a consortium led by Multiplex and Compass Group to build, own and operate the facility.

The new facility would reduce Woodside’s demand on other transient worker villages in Karratha.

It currently has about 950 employees and contractors across four facilities – Aspen, Cheratta, Civeo and Kingfisher.

Don't let it happen. Karratha needs residential to bring in local jobs for youth in the area. Fifo destroys the community fabric of the town and does not help the local economy.

Here we go again. What a joke, More FIFO facilities taking money out of the town. Great!!!!

Half the houses in Karratha are empty... fill them up first!

Certainly don't need another camp in Karratha, way too many empty houses.

So what you're saying is we should have more brownfield experienced oil and gas personnel living in Karratha, or we should put lives at risk by throwing anyone who lives in Karratha into a live gas plant? There is a reason people are flown to the Karratha gas plant.

Woodside should lease some of the empty houses, or better still buy them as an asset.
