First convened in April 2010, our Central Gas Field Community Consultative Committee met to discuss issues and opportunities connected to QGC's work in the central part of the Surat Basin.

The committee represented communities around the larger towns of Chinchilla, Condamine and Kogan, as well as Columboola, Cameby, Drillham South, Nangram, Crossroads and Hopeland.

It met every three months and was chaired by an independent facilitator. QGC provided a secretariat role, issuing minutes and reporting back on action points raised.
