Broome Bright Spark
An Operations Engineer with Buru Energy, Broome resident Ben Hoile is an Aussies Rules lover and a self-confessed bad golfer.
He is also one of thousands of Australians engaged in the vital process of connecting natural gas with the people, processes and products that rely on it.
“Natural gas has a role to play in lowering global carbon emissions,” says Ben.
“It’s pleasing to know I am contributing to an energy source so present in everyday lives around the world. Gas is an essential resource that contributes to improving the lives of millions of people. It keeps most of the world warm in winter and is critical to a number of manufacturing processes.
“Natural gas is also front and centre in the transition to renewables; it’s a lower carbon emission fuel, it’s widely accessible in Australia, and there’s a long history of how to use it safely.
“It’s the most efficient way to complement renewables without compromising on our energy needs. Being the cleanest traditional fuel source, natural gas will play an increasingly significant role in world energy consumption as the transition to lower carbon energy progresses.
