Queensland's LNG industry workforce reaches 30,000

THE state's employment figures in the coal seam and liquid natural gas industries has reached a new high of almost 30,000 workers, the State Government announced early this week.

LNG companies were also found to have injected more than $20 billion into businesses across the state, which Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney said was a positive as the industry's projects moved from concept to delivery.

"The three Queensland LNG plants on Curtis Island are world-firsts for converting coal seam gas to liquefied natural gas for export, and at a time of global uncertainty, this industry has been the driving force behind growth in our great state," Mr Seeney said.

"This $60 billion-plus of investment is flowing throughout the state and transforming regional communities."

Mr Seeney officially opened Arrow Energy's new headquarters in Brisbane on Monday.
