bp welcomes Oakajee land allocation

Release date:
18 October 2022
bp is delighted that its ambitions to be part of a globally competitive, multi-product renewable hydrogen industrial hub near Geraldton are a step closer, after being allocated land at the Oakajee Strategic Industrial Area by the WA Government.

Justin Nash, Senior Manager, Integrated Solutions, bp Australia, said bp believes Western Australia is ideally positioned for green hydrogen production.


“The mid-west region’s natural advantages are no secret, and as we look to tackle what bp refers to as the energy trilemma – providing more secure, affordable and lower carbon energy – places like the Mid-West and Gascoyne stand out. “


The State Government's Industrial Lands Panel announced the land allocation for the Oakajee Strategic Industrial Area (SIA) today. The site has the potential to serve as a base for the production of green hydrogen and green ammonia.


“We look forward to working with our potential industrial neighbours, and the broader community, to help underpin a new hub of clean energy initiatives, and help create new opportunities for the region,” said Mr Nash.


In 2021, the State Government committed $47.5 million to the activation of the Oakajee SIA, and it has been progressing road infrastructure as a first step in developing the area as a globally competitive precinct.


Our ongoing work on this project is part of bp’s plan to become a #netzero company by 2050 or sooner, and help the world get to net zero.
