Oil and gas giant Woodside has launched a local jobs portal in an effort to improve access to work opportunities for City of Karratha residents.

WA Premier Mark McGowan and Woodside chief operations officer Meg O’Neill visited the Karratha Gas Plant on Friday morning to launch the portal.

Ms O’Neill said the portal would ensure Karratha benefited from Woodside’s next wave of projects.

“Our growth projects build on the significant amount of infrastructure we have locally – and we want people from Karratha to have every opportunity to work with us,” she said.

“Woodside is again entering a growth and construction phase on the Burrup Hub, with Scarborough to Pluto and Browse to the North West Shelf on the horizon, both of which will support thousands of jobs as we invest billions of dollars in developing gas for domestic and export markets.”

Woodside will work with key contractors and local employers to add job opportunities to the site as they arise.

More to come.
