Focusing on downstream processing industries
The Burrup Strategic Industrial Area (SIA) has available land for proponents looking to invest in the Pilbara. This SIA is planned to provide land for downstream processing projects based on the local resources, particularly natural gas.
All sites located within the Burrup SIA are connected to the port and multi-user bulk liquids jetty via the Burrup Service Corridor.
Proponents that have already chosen to invest in the Burrup SIA include:
› BHP Billiton
› Japan Australia LNG (MIMI)
› Yara Pilbara Fertilisers
› Yara Pilbara Nitrates
Extensive support industries are also available in the area including port services, marine and sub-sea support industries, heavy lifting, specialty welding and construction as well as engineering and mining. Sites are available for lease to strategic industrial proponents and will be allocated by the Department of State Development through a lease arrangement with LandCorp.
