New LNG Jobs Taskforce study underway

LNG Jobs Taskforce commences WA carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) and carbon capture and storage (CCS) study.

Commissioned by the LNG Jobs Taskforce, the study will help inform the future of the State’s existing gas industry and the development of new industries and projects.

CCUS and CCS has the potential to assist with decarbonising the gas industry and other emission-intensive industrial sectors, achieving the Western Australian Government’s Net Zero by 2050 target, regional development and future job creation.

Established by Premier Mark McGowan in 2018, the LNG Jobs Taskforce brings together industry, government and unions to collaborate on challenges and opportunities for WA’s existing LNG sector, with the aim of maximising local jobs and establishing WA as a global LNG hub.
