QGC project spend

QGC PTY Limited has spent nearly A$8 billion since the start of 2010 developing its Queensland Curtis LNG project and domestic gas business with about 74% of it spent in Australia and 59% in Queensland.

The figures are from QGC's latest six-monthly report to the Queensland Coordinator-General on Australian industry participation.

The report covers from October 1, 2011, to March 31, 2012.

At March 31, 2012, Queensland and Australian companies were contracted for work valued at $6.1 billion for goods and services for QGC and its project.

QGC managing director Derek Fisher said about $4.4 billion of this was being done by Queensland-owned and operated businesses.
