Rebuilding the Economy in Post-COVID QLD
Natural gas has played a pivotal role in the Queensland economy over the past ten years. And, as Queensland recovers from the economic impacts of COVID-19, the natural gas industry can play a large part in getting things back on track.
Between 2011 and 2018, the natural gas industry spent more than $49.7 billion in Queensland across business purchases, community investment and government payments. Over the same period, the industry employed 4,600 Queenslanders every year, spent over $23 billion in regional areas and paid $505 million directly to landholders.
With the right policies, Queensland can continue to attract investment and the natural gas industry will continue to make huge contributions to the state economy.Explore
