Perdaman seeks to play an active and supportive role in the Collie community and believes that its Collie Urea plant represents a significant opportunity for the local community, regional Western Australia and for the nation as a whole.

The US$2.5 billion Collie Urea plant will generate on average around 1,500 jobs during the three-year construction phase of the project and 200 permanent jobs during plant operations.

Where possible Perdaman intends to source products and services locally.

It is anticipated that the workforce employed on the project will live in the surrounding local communities including Collie and the City of Bunbury.

Moving forward, Perdaman anticipates that the Collie Urea plant will generate in excess of US$600 million per annum in export earnings for Western Australia following the first shipment scheduled for 2013.

Perdaman is seeking to make a long-term investment into the Collie region and has commenced a process to inform the community and all key stakeholders about the project to ensure open communication and understanding of the project as it moves forward.
