Employment opportunities

We need to drill and establish 10,000 gas wells in the Bowen and Surat Basins over the next 30 years; construct a gas transmission pipeline about 530 kilometres long; and build an LNG facility on Curtis Island, off the coast of Gladstone. So, we’re going to be busy! And, we need help.

We need people from the following vocational areas:

  • geosciences
  • pipeline workers
  • rig operators
  • landowner support teams
  • indigenous and community affairs
  • site managers
  • operations crews
  • field and plant operators
  • even more engineers (yes, more!)
  • jetty subcontractors
  • builders, electrical and instrument trades
  • painting, fireproofing and insulation workers
  • safety and risk advisors
  • surveyors, project managers
  • health and safety advisors
  • tank workers and environmental scientists...
  • and that's not all we could have listed!

We'll need 6,000 people over the life of the project...

A peak workforce of approximately 6,000 workers will be required during the development and construction phase and approximately 1,000 during the operational phase of the Project.

This is a massive project with positive momentum and a lot of passionate people involved.
