The CSG industry is creating thousands of jobs in major cities, regional centres and rural areas.
Three major CSG-to-LNG developments are developing major gas export projects that link inland Queensland gas fields to Gladstone.
These and other smaller projects – including CSG developments to supply gas for power stations, industry or household use – are creating jobs throughout Queensland and NSW.
Many other jobs are also being created with suppliers and contractors, such as drilling and services companies. This sector is now a major employer in Queensland's Toowoomba and Western Downs regions, which have unemployment rates that are well below the southern Queenland and national averages. At the end of 2011, the CSG industry employed 12,113 people (4578 directly and 7535 as contractors).
Several CSG companies have employment and careers webpages, including apprenticeship applications and skills scholarship forms.
CSG companies are spending many millions of dollars on local services and supply contracts.
They welcome enquiries from potential suppliers. Several CSG company websites provide query or registration of interest forms for suppliers.
