Shell QGC to develop more natural gas, creating 350 jobs

Like postLikeLabel * DEFAULT * en-GB


Shell’s QGC onshore natural gas venture in Queensland Australia has announced its intention to drill 250 new gas wells during the course of 2019 and 2020 which will create 350 new jobs.

Located in the Western Downs region of Queensland, the new wells will connect to existing QGC gas processing plants and will bring approximately 930 petajoules of gas to market over the next three decades.
The QGC venture is one of Australia's largest natural gas projects providing employment to over 1,000 people.

The QGC venture is one of Australia’s largest natural gas projects, employing upwards of 1,000 people, and has been in operation since 2006. Current onshore operations include a 8.5Mt/y liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant on Curtis Island and natural gas operations in the Surat Basin.

The new expansion project has been named ‘Project Goog-a-binge’. Goog-a-binge is the Iman word for scrub turkey, a significant totem for this group, and found across the region.

Shell Australia chairman Zoe Yujnovich said Project Goog-a-binge will further boost Queensland’s regional economy and demonstrates Shell’s commitment to bring more gas to market.

“Project Goog-a-binge will deliver more and cleaner energy for both our Australian and LNG export customers for decades,” said Ms Yujnovich.

“The project is expected to create or sustain up to 350 jobs, the majority of which will be in regional Queensland and generate business opportunities for local suppliers- a substantial and ongoing boost for the local economy,” she concluded.

In the first half of 2018, Shell has already spent $140 million in Toowoomba and Surat Basin communities on goods and services supporting its existing operations. 

The company currently supplies around 60% of Queensland’s domestic gas demand through both QGC and Arrow Energy.

The expansion project is expected to begin in January 2019- subject to government approvals- with construction lasting at least 12 months.
