The Western Australian Government has allocated $20 million to upgrade Exmouth Boat Harbour in the state’s north.

The planned extension of the wharf and addition of a heavy lifting facility comes after a previous project added 25 cyclone-rated pens for commercial and recreational use.

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman says this will allow more oil and gas exports to be transported through the regional centre.

"As the largest harbour in the region, Exmouth is well placed to be a service and support centre for the resources sector in the north," he says.

"[With the upgrade] we should see better access to the wharf for loading and unloading, [as well as] water and fuel."

The upgrade will be funded under WA’s Royalties for Regions program.
