Western Australia names new mines and petroleum minister

Sean L’Estrange has been appointed as Western Australia’s new minister for mines and petroleum, replacing Bill Marmion, who has been appointed minister for state development.

Western Australia is home to the Chevron’s Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG projects, as well as Shell’s giant Prelude FLNG, which is expected to start operations this year.

L’Estrange has been an active member of Parliament since his election to the seat of Churchlands in 2013. He is currently the chairman of the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee. Before entering Parliament, he established his own management consulting practice in Perth.
