QGC still investing in the mining industry

THE developer of a multi-billion-dollar gas project on Curtis Island off Gladstone will deliver up to 200 new jobs after awarding five earthmoving contracts worth $279 million.

The deals mean successful firms - all from the Surat Basin in south-west Queensland - will spend up to three years doing earthworks for new gas wells and roads for gas giant QGC.

The five compaies were

  • Bruhl Roadworks and Earthmoving of Tara,
  • Mike Jones Earthmoving of Wandoan,
  • Ostwald Bros of Dalby,
  • Jeff Reid Earthmoving of Emerald, and
  • Clein Excavations and Tipper Hire of Chinchilla.

QGC is building the Queensland Curtis LNG project - better known as QCLNG - at a cost of $20 billion.

Once finished, it will take piped coal-seam gas from the Surat and convert it into liquefied natural gas before exporting it internationally.
