The Western Australia Government will offer LNG vessels at Pilbara a discount in port dues to establish the region as a global fuelling hub.
The McGowan Government will offer a 50 per cent discount in port dues to bulk vessels bunkering with LNG at Pilbara ports from 1 July 2020, with the price cut to remain in place for the next five years.
The state government said the move was part of plan to promote the use of LNG-fuelled vessels to export resources over heavy fuel oil vessels, which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
