Jobs, investment and growth onboard Pluto Train 2

The launch of construction on Woodside Energy’s Pluto Train 2 is a signal of continued strength in WA’s energy and resources sector, and a boost for the State’s economy and jobs in coming years. It signals to the global investment community that Western Australia is among the very leading jurisdictions around the world as a place to invest.

Major projects like this are critical to WA’s long-term prosperity. They provide opportunities for local businesses to partner in the supply chain, investment in local communities, and an infusion of skills, investment and technology.

It is also important to recognise that the LNG coming through Pluto Train 2 will help countries in our region and around the world transition to net zero emissions.

Construction across Scarborough and Pluto 2 are a fundamental contributor to headline business investment in Western Australia in coming years. This is critical to the strength and stability of our economy, powering ongoing growth.

CCIWA has been continuously assisting local businesses to get involved supplying Pluto Train 2, which will provide around 2,000 jobs at its peak.

CCIWA is working to ensure regulatory conditions are as efficient and conducive to investment as possible, and WA must continue to build and attract investment in emerging sectors to support economic diversification.
