As part of Australia Pacific LNG, we work with landholders, local suppliers and community groups.

Working with landholders

Before our operations commence

We believe it's important to introduce ourselves to landholders in the areas where Australian Pacific LNG construction activities are proposed.

Our Landholder Relations Advisors meet with landholders and explain how our potential future activities might impact them. We see this as an opportunity for us to listen and to address any questions about coal seam gas activities that may be undertaken on their property.

Throughout our operations

Once our operations are embedded, we understand our responsibility to the community changes and we do our best to keep the lines of communication open.

Our Community Relations Business Partners enable us to continue to listen and work with our neighbours.
