Opposition Leader, Terry Mills, will travel to Perth tomorrow morning to meet with representatives from the joint venture company expected to build the INPEX Ichthys LNG plant in Darwin.

Construction giant Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR) is gearing up for the massive project and has already advertised for workers in Saturday’s newspaper.

“I am looking forward to meeting with representatives from the construction giant to push the Territory’s case for local jobs and opportunities.” Mr. Mills said.

“I will get a rundown on the employment needs and business opportunities that will be created during the construction phase.”

“I will also meet key contractors who are keen to hit the ground running.”

“INPEX is expected to make a final investment decision on the plant later this year, so it’s important I meet with the joint venture partners and identify opportunities for Territory businesses and workers.” Mr. Mills said.

“KBR is in the early stages of assessing its fly-in, fly-out workforce, so I will be able to get a clear picture of how the project will work and how the Territory can best capitalise on the construction phase.”

“While in Perth I will also take the opportunity for further meetings with officials from INPEX for an update on the project.” Mr. Mills said.

“The LNG development has the potential to provide a foundation on which to build the Territory’s economy for many years to come.”

“The time to act is now and I’ll be working hard to bring home as many jobs and opportunities as I can for Territory families and business.” Mr. Mills said.
