In the ‘How to get a job at …….’ series we are going to be running over Australian Mining and Construction projects all over the country. In each post we will include an Overview of the project, a Location Profile, the Companies involved, the Occupations required, the skills / qualifications that will help you to get your foot in the door and the Enterprise Bargaining Agreements. This will help you to stay in the loop and know how to skill up where needed. The aim is to help you get yourself into the best position to land a start on the major sites and projects around Australia.
About the Arrow Energy Bowen Gas Project
From the Arrow Energy website
Arrow’s proposed Bowen Gas Project involves a phased expansion of Arrow’s CSG production in the Bowen Basin to supply the liquefied natural gas (LNG) export market. The proposed project includes infrastructure for extracting and compressing gas, and for treating water produced from CSG extraction. The Arrow Energy Bowen Gas Project will transport CSG approximately 500km from the Bowen Basin to Gladstone. The Bowen Gas Project entered front-end engineering design (FEED) in late 2014. This is expected to take about 12 months.
Note – At this stage Arrow Energy’s Bowen Gas Project has received environmental approval from the Federal Government. The initial phase of front end engineering design has been awarded in October 2014 and is expected to continue for up to 12 months.
From the Clough AMEC website
Clough AMEC joint venture has been awarded a AU$70 million front end engineering design (FEED) contract for Arrow Energy’s proposed Bowen Gas Project in central Queensland. The contract involves front end engineering to support the next phase of Arrow’s work to develop and commercialise its significant Bowen Basin gas reserves. The FEED scope includes engineering, procurement and contracts award for the early works.

Arrow Energy Bowen Gas Project Union Greenfields Enterprise Bargaining Agreements
An Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) is a collective industrial agreement between either an employer and a trade union acting on behalf of employees or an employer and employees acting for themselves.
At this stage of the Bowen Gas Project no companies have been awarded any construction works so no EBA’s can be found, as they are found they will be uploaded into this article.
