Queensland’s GasFields Commission has, for the very first time, a major presence at the Surat Basin Energy and Mining Expo.
The expo, which is organised by local company Australian Events, will be held at the Toowoomba Showgrounds from June 17-18.
The GasFields Commission will occupy a major exhibition site for the purpose of engaging with business owners about supply chain opportunities with coal seam gas companies in the Surat Basin.
Additionally, the commission has engaged senior procurement officers from the gas companies and their major contractors.
Australian Events’ Director Corporate Development Greg Johnson said the addition of the GasFields Commission, CSG companies and major contractors “represents a defining moment in the evolution of this major, national event”.
“Clearly these three groups are saying they want to talk to local businesses about supply chain opportunities in the Surat Basin. In a nutshell, the Surat Basin is open for business,” Mr Johnson said.
“I’d be very surprised if the majority of Toowoomba and Surat Basin businesses aren’t represented at some stage over the two days.”
Delegate registration for business owners and their staff is free online at www.suratbasinexpo.com.au.
