Contract Resources has announced that it has signed Woodside as the first client for its multi-million dollar LNG Waste Processing Facility in Karratha, Australia.
Woodside has signed a seven year deal to utilise the plant to process spent catalyst and hazardous waste by-products that are removed from the oil and gas production stream process.
The secure storage, processing and purification facility will be the first of its kind in Australia. Construction of the plant is expected to be completed in early next year and plant operations will begin immediately after with the processing of Woodside’s materials.
Niall Myles, Senior Vice President of Woodside’s Australia Operating Unit, said: “Woodside is pleased to be the foundation client for Contract Resource’s new treatment plant, which will provide an innovative and environmentally sustainable solution for the LNG industry in Australia. This will mean employment opportunities for our local community in Karratha, through the construction and operation of the plant.”
Contract Resources’ Executive Officer, Ivor Ferguson, added: “Woodside’s input and support for the development of this plant has been invaluable and we are delighted to have them on board as our foundation client. This new facility will enable LNG waste materials to be processed locally and in a timely and environmentally friendly manner; and eliminates the risks LNG gas producers are currently facing, with local long term storage and international transportation and disposal of hazardous waste by-products.”
