New QGC operations hub opens

QGC have opened their new gas operations hub in Brisbane, which was dedicated by the federal industry minister Ian Macfarlane.

The QGC Hub will be operated and supported by 120 engineering, commercial and production workers, who will be responsible for the operation of wells, pipelines and processing plants.

QGC managing director Mitch Ingram said leading-edge technology was helping QGC to work safer and smarter.

“Our teams monitor thousands of wells, dozens of processing facilities, thousands of kilometres of connecting pipelines and hundreds of people,” Ingram said.

“We can now oversee all this equipment in real time and keep our staff safe by pinpointing the location of vehicles and individuals working in remote locations.

“The data received at the hub also helps us forecast and improve gas production, helping us to meet our goal of being the best producer of natural gas in Australia.”
