We operate within a common geographical area in Queensland, which involves many overlaps with communities and regulators. We use similar technologies with common hazards and risks. As a result, collaboration on safety is a natural outcome.
We also know that we do not have a monopoly on best practice in Queensland. To be truly collaborative we need to look outside the Queensland Natural Gas E&P Industry. For the best outcomes we must be prepared to share what we have and learn from others.
Genuine collaboration is a structured two-way dialogue that focuses on action and outcomes. We are proud to work with the following collaboration partners to improve safety in our industry:
