Providing available strategic industrial land for downstream processing industries.
The Burrup Strategic Industrial Area (Burrup SIA) is a well-established strategic industrial estate with vacant land for strategic industry in close proximity to gas, port and other key infrastructure in the Pilbara region. Further information on the Pilbara region can be obtained from the Pilbara Development Commission.
The Burrup SIA has been created to take advantage of the region's natural gas resources and other competitive advantages.
Industries currently located within the Burrup SIA include:
- the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Venture project - a joint venture between Woodside, Shell, BHP Billiton, BP, Chevron and Japan Australia LNG (MIMI);
- Woodside's Pluto LNG plant;
- the Yara Pilbara Fertilisers plant; and
- Yara Pilbara Nitrates' $600million technical ammonium nitrates plant.
The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI) is the lead agency for the development of the Burrup SIA and DevelopmentWA is the estate manager.

In 1996 the Burrup Peninsula Land Use Plan and Management Strategy was prepared by the Burrup Peninsula Management Advisory Board for the purpose of allocating land for industry, conservation, heritage and recreation. This document also provides management objectives and outlines acceptable uses and development considerations.
DevelopmentWA supports the development of sustainable strategic industrial areas through the encouragement of the co-location of industries with waste re-use and other synergies where possible.
Environmental details will be added to this page as they become available.
Gas, power, potable water and desalinated water are located in close proximity to the Burrup SIA. The Servicing Plan shows the location of these existing services.
Discussions with major service providers are recommended to determine the capacity of existing services for a proponent's needs.
