Another 1900 jobs on Santos GLNG’s proposed gas field expansion

There could be more jobs for Queenslanders in the Surat and Bowen basins.

QUEENSLANDERS have been invited to have their say on a proposed expansion of Santos GLNG’s gas field operations that could see another 1900 jobs created.

The Queensland Coordinator-General has released a draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed project and will undertake a rigorous environmental assessment of it before any decision is made.

Deputy Premier and State Development Minister Jeff Seeney said the potential expansion of Santos GLNG’s coal seam gas fields in the Surat and Bowen basins could create 1700 jobs for Queenslanders during construction and a further 200 ongoing operational jobs.

“The proposed Santos GLNG Gas Field Development Project entails the progressive development of 35 petroleum tenements covering around 11,000 square kilometres in the south-west of the state,” Mr Seeney said.

“These tenements are located across areas in the vicinity of Roma, Wallumbilla, Miles, Surat, Wandoan, Taroom, Injune and Rolleston and could lead to about 6000 production wells and necessary accompanying infrastructure being constructed progressively over the next 20 years.”

He said if the project goes ahead, it would provide considerable medium and long-term job opportunities for the region.
