Federal Libs open to FLNG - The West Australian

Federal Libs open to FLNG - The West Australian:
"Whilst I respect Colin's position and hear what the unions are saying, if it is a choice between jobs in operating and ongoing maintenance of the facilities from bases in Australia, or no jobs for an onshore option at James Price Point, I know which option I am going to choose."

Mr MacFarlane has an unlikely ally in the debate in Federal Labor Resources Minister Gary Gray, who says FLNG is an opportunity for WA to be at the cutting edge of technology and to develop skills beyond those used in basic construction.

The Federal Government notionally supports land-based processing at James Price Point, but has yet to give environmental approval.

Some in the industry believe it is preparing to ditch its support for the controversial site opposed by green groups which, if true, would mean the coalition's position would assume more than theoretical status should it win in September.
