Australian rig recycling centre proposed

In a submission to the Western Australian government, Friends of the Earth Australia (FoEA) is calling for an Australian Rig Recycling Centre (ARRC) to be built in the Pilbara, where decommissioned oil and gas rigs can be cleaned and scrapped for recycling.

FoEA says the new centre would provide thousands of new, ongoing jobs.

The submission is FoEA’s contribution to the state’s “Draft Decommissioning Discussion Paper.” The closing date for submissions to the paper is today, 18 November.
