Consultative committees serve as a conduit between ourselves and the communities in which we operate. Members are drawn from a cross-section of society. Our Community Consultative Committees allow us to reach out, inform and consult with local people who speak up for the towns and rural vicinities in which we work. Our consultative committees were first established in early 2010.

Members are drawn from a cross-section of society, including local government, education, health, community services, and business and recreation sectors. Specifically, each committee:

  • Provides a forum for information exchange between QGC and community representatives,
  • Identifies and provides feedback to QGC about issues and opportunities related to QGC construction and operational activities.

Please visit the committee pages below for further information, contact details and to download meeting minutes.

Past Community Consultative Committees

Regional, Southern, Central and Northern Gas Fields Community Consultative Committees. In the Surat Basin area, four committees amalgamated in 2015 to form two committees that better representated the region in line with QGC's transition from a focus on major project construction to operations. Information about these committees is available here: Regional, Central, Northern.

Pipeline Community Consultative Committee.

This committee operated from December 2010 - December 2013 and was the key forum for identifying issues and opportunities for those affected by construction of the QCLNG pipeline. Find out more about this committee.
