Important step approved, says MP
FEDERAL Member for Flynn Chris Trevor has welcomed the Queensland Government’s approval for the Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) project, describing it as an important step towards delivering the LNG industry to Gladstone.
Last week’s announcement complemented discussions held in Canberra between Mr Trevor and senior BG executives including chief executive Frank Chapman and QGC managing director and former Gladstone local Catherine Tanna.
“I will seek confirmation from the Gillard Labor Government this week that what I have been working on for months to protect my home town of Gladstone’s future will become a reality for residents, workers and small business under the new Gillard leadership,” Mr Trevor said.
“This (QCLNG) marks another positive step forward for Gladstone’s proposed LNG industry.
“I have worked hard to bring the LNG industry to Gladstone as I strongly believe it will secure the region’s prosperity and provide countless opportunities for local workers, their families and small business.
“While there are still a number processes to go through, I remain committed to ensuring that this world-class and community-minded industry will call Gladstone home,” Mr Trevor said.
