Golding's construction of LNG terminal brings 100 local jobs
GOLDINGS contractors have been pushing dirt at the more than $17 million GLNG and QCLNG site for two months now.
Gladstone MP Glenn Butcher took the opportunity yesterday to show education minister Kate Jones the site where the LNG companies were using local businesses.
"The special part of this project is that is it being delivered by a local company Goldings using local workers," he said.
The project will support more than 100 local jobs with workers from Goldings and Cutuli Electrical, another locally owned business, on site.
The new transit centre will take five minutes off the ferry trip to Curtis Island and shorten the bus route on the mainland.
Santos general manager of downstream operations Brenton Hawtin sand the new terminal was an example of Santos and QGC working together.
"It also demonstrates the value we continue to provide to the Gladstone economy through our activities," he said.
