Local ideas helped QGC redirect benefits from QCLNG

A QUEENSLAND-first project in which gas company QGC has worked with community and not-for-profit organisations has been celebrated in Gladstone.

Operations director Walter Simpson said ideas generated by locals had helped QGC redirect benefits from its QCLNG project.

The plan centres on a $150 million social impact management plan, focused on health and safety, housing, local employment and training, economic development, indigenous communities and social infrastructure.

"We listened, we heard and we said that we would do our best to respect and contribute to this region and its community," Mr Simpson said.

"You helped us. Together we made a plan and formed partnerships to deliver it - and deliver we have."

QGC said the program had delivered education and training programs for young people, health initiatives, community services to reduce social isolation, cultural awareness programs and initiatives to help keep the community safe.
