How can we help?
The GasFields Commission Queensland is an independent statutory body – governed by the Gasfields Commission Act 2013 – who facilitates trustworthy relationships and respectful communication between Queensland’s natural gas, agricultural, business and government sectors.
The Commission’s purpose is to manage and improve sustainable coexistence between landholders, regional communities and Queensland’s onshore gas industry.
What we do
- Engage with all relevant stakeholders
- Compile and distribute factual and contemporary information related to the onshore gas industry
- Provide tools to enable informed decision making
- Help regional communities adapt to the introduction of gas development activities
- Make recommendations for best practice business-to-business relationships
- Act as the central contact for anything to do with natural gas in Queensland
- Facilitate connections to assist stakeholders with finding more help if needed.
To assist us to deliver these services we have a network of locally based engagement officers who are able to identify systemic, emerging and legacy issues, recommend options to remedy problems and provide information in response to stakeholders questions or concerns.
What we don’t do
- We don’t become involved in one-on-one negotiations or disputes
- We don’t investigate complaints
- We don’t manage water bore issues.
However, the GasFields Commission can put you in contact with the people who do perform these functions – visit our useful links page for more information on where to seek help, or send us a direct message via our ‘Live Chat’ Message App.
To investigate current gas development activities, visit the GFCQ Interactive Gas Map which gives you access to view and download geospatial data/information relating to Queensland’s onshore gas industry activities in your local area.
