Have your say on the upcoming ‘Shared Landscapes – Industry Trends’ Report

The GasFields Commission are today launching a community consultation survey with the aim of tailoring the content that will be presented in the next iteration of the Commission’s ‘Shared Landscapes – Industry Trends’ Report.

This is a unique opportunity for rural landholders, regional communities, local government authorities and Queenslanders in general to have their say and help guide the Commission’s annual reporting on Queensland’s onshore gas industry. Survey responses will close at 5pm, Friday 1 October, 2021.

The Commission remains committed to publishing factual and contemporary information related to the onshore gas industry that is relevant, meaningful and valuable to our stakeholders.

*** The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete – all responses will be treated as strictly confidential ***

Who are the GasFields Commission Queensland?

Established as an independent statutory body in 2013, the Commission’s purpose is to manage and improve the sustainable coexistence of landholders, regional communities and the onshore gas industry in Queensland. The Commission manages sustainable coexistence in petroleum and gas producing regions of Queensland, and will continue to do so as the industry expands into new and emerging basins.

Our vision is to achieve thriving communities in areas of gas development that are free from discord and supported by well-informed, respectful and balanced stakeholder relationships.

One way the Commission is endeavouring to realise this vision is by providing transparency and independent assurances that the onshore gas industry is appropriately regulated and held to account when needed. This in turn will help cultivate sustainable coexistence, whilst ensuring community and landholder confidence in the regulators and gas industry increases.

Drawing on its wealth of experience in the development of the gas industry and by collaborating with other relevant entities, the Commission provides a range of support to communities and landholders, primarily through education and engagement. These education and engagement activities occur with individual landholders via Commission facilitated webinars, information sessions, publications (The Gas Guide, Shared Landscapes Reports), face-to-face meetings and public workshops.

It should be noted that the Commission does not engage in individual negotiations between landholders and gas companies, but rather provides communities and landholders with the information and support they need to make informed decisions and achieve good outcomes.
