Queensland Curtis LNG Project
Queensland Curtis LNG is a priority project of QGC, a BG Group business, to develop Queensland coal seam gas for Australian and international markets.
In its first stage, Queensland Curtis LNG will represent one of Australia`s largest capital infrastructure projects.
The project is well under way and, pending approvals, construction of the liquefaction plant with two processing units is scheduled to begin in 2010 ahead of first delivery of LNG in 2014.
The project investigation area extends from the Surat Basin in southern Qld to Gladstone and Curtis Island on the state`s central coast.
- An increase in Queensland`s gross state product of up to $A32 billion between 2010 and 2021
- New gas extraction and transportation infrastructure
- 4000 mining jobs in Queensland during construction
- 1000 permanent mining job positions in Queensland

Learn more about the Bowen Basin mining location.
The Bowen Basin contains the largest coal reserves in Australia. This major coal producing region contains one of the world’s largest deposits of bituminous coal.
The Basin contains much of the known Permian coal resources in Queensland including virtually all of the known mineable prime coking coal. It was named for the Bowen River, itself named after Queensland’s first Governor, Sir George Bowen.
The Bowen Basin covers an area of over 60,000 square kilometres in Central Queensland running from Collinsville to Theodore and is dotted with many coal mines operated by multiple mining companies.

Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII)
Commonly refered to as Black Coal Competency (BCC), the RII competency is one that can be attained by an operator who has previously worked in the industry and has completed a number of operating hours on various types of machinery.
RII competency is granted to prove correct and safe operation of mine site machinery. It is a very useful qualification to have, as it confirms the operator has the required experience and expertise.
You can transfer your nationally recognised civil Excavator, Front End Loader or Dozer tickets only to RII Black Coal Competencies.
