The Gladstone Region LNG Community Consultative Committee - a joint consultative body convened by QGC, Australia Pacific LNG and Santos GLNG - has existed in its current form since July 2011, the previous QGC Consultative Committee established in April 2010.

The committee is the key forum for dialogue between the Gladstone community and the three LNG companies: QGC, Australia Pacific LNG and Santos GLNG.

QGC, Australia Pacific LNG and Santos GLNG each recognise the importance of building long-term, enduring relationships with communities impacted by their current and future operations.

Membership consists of nominated representatives of organisations/ regions and two representatives from each of the LNG companies. Member organisations were identified by the community to represent a specific impact topic, interest group or geographic area within the Gladstone Regional Council Local Government Area.

The committee has an independent chair and meets three times a year. The steering committee is composed of QGC, Australia Pacific LNG and Santos GLNG representatives.
