The project to date has created thousands of Queensland LNG Jobs.
QGC’s target to become Queensland’s first LNG exporter is on track with its $20 billion LNG plant on Curtis Island progressing along very quickly, with it due for completion as early as 2014.

The company hopes to secure the right kind of workers to fill their Queensland LNG jobs vacancies as work ramps up both on and off the island.

- Production area supervisors
- Production technicians
