The latest phase in the QGC’s natural gas business in Queensland, the Charlie Development, represents an AU$1.7 billion investment which will create up to 1,600 new jobs.

Located just north of the Woleebee Creek central processing plant, Charlie consists of 300–400 wells, a large field compression station and associated pipelines and facilities, which will feed into existing gas processing and water infrastructure at Woleebee Creek.

“I think it’s a fantastic development, and a fantastic project,” QGC Managing Director Tony Nunan said.

“It builds on the back of all the infrastructure we put in place in Phase 1 and allows us to step out with our next lot of wells and our next field compression station.”

The development follows Commonwealth and State government environmental approvals, with the works forming part of the continuous development of QGC’s tenements in the Surat Basin to support gas supplies for domestic customers and the Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) Project.

QGC, which has appointed Leighton Contractors Pty Limited as the main works contractor, will progress development and construction immediately.

Major infrastructure will be built on QGC property.

The QCLNG plant has delivered 62 cargoes since first LNG production in December 2014.

BG holds a 93.75 per cent stake across the two-train development, with Chinese state oil and gas producer CNOOC holding a 10 per cent interest in the first train and Japan’s Tokyo Gas holding a 2.5 per cent interest in the second train.
