Gladstone Business in the Spotlight on International Stage
Each year International energy company, ConocoPhillips, recognises a handful of businesses for their excellence in providing products and services to the company as suppliers. This year, as part of their Supplier Recognition Award Program, ConocoPhillips highlighted the services of Xtreme Engineering, a Gladstone-based organisation.
Xtreme Engineering’s work on the Curtis Island LNG facility was highlighted by ConocoPhillips East President, Wendy King, as safe, timely and of high quality. Ms King said the award reinforced Queensland’s status as an industrial powerhouse.
“As a high-quality planning, engineering and fabrication firm, Xtreme Engineering provided the on-site support of 25 employees during our recent shutdowns and off-site fabrication and planning work,” she said.
Xtreme, now in its eleventh year, specialises in construction and maintenance, and provided specialist welding services to ConocoPhillips. Scott Harrington, General Manager for Xtreme, says it is an honour for his local small business to be recognised by a global company.
“We’re a Gladstone business, so it’s great that this type of work can be undertaken in the Gladstone region by Gladstone locals”, he said.
Income from natural gas doesn’t just benefit those directly employed by the industry but does a lot to support the local communities that host gas projects. Small businesses and local economies in host communities and around the country benefit from this income.Explore
