Major Projects

The Western Downs is part of a broader region that is on the cusp of a $180 billion energy industry emerging from the resource rich Surat Basin Energy province. The region has over 60 major projects either in operation or scheduled for commissioning by 2020, creating an estimated 12,500 jobs.

Leveraging of the energy sector investment in the region will ensure long term economic growth. This includes opportunities to work with and supply projects, power station sector needs and the potential to establish new industries.
