Abstract/Summary In recent years the abundant Australian resources industry has experienced an injection of highly technical capital intensive projects in what has been a rapid expansion in the Queensland Coal Seam Gas (CSG) market. While enormous economic benefits exist with the construction and operation of such projects within the Oil and Gas industry, the opportunity for local suppliers and businesses to tap into projects and operations are challenging. This paper demonstrates the growing interest and challenges of building local supply chain capability in the QLD Coal Seam Gas Industry. Firstly, the paper introduces the background of industry wide capability challenges, unique aspects of CSG operations on supply chain and provides insight into the case company QGC which is building the Queensland Curtis Liquefied Natural Gas (QCLNG) project, and anticipates an operating life in excess of 20 years. Secondly, key elements of local supplier capability are defined and presented. Lastly the paper recommends possible solutions to better integrate regional and local suppliers into large international supply chains via capability improvement at various stages of the contracting cycle.
