[learn_more caption=”Stanwell Corporation”]
Stanwell Corporation Limited is Queensland’s largest power generator with the capacity to supply more than 45 per cent of the state’s peak power needs.
Following a restructure of the Queensland Government-owned generators, Stanwell’s existing portfolio was strengthened from 1 July 2011 with the addition of Tarong and Tarong North power stations and Meandu Mine in the South Burnett region (transferred from Tarong Energy), Swanbank B and Swanbank E power stations near Ipswich, and Mica Creek Power Station in north-west Queensland (transferred from CS Energy).
With almost 1000 employees; a combined generating capacity of 4478 megawatts; gas, hydro and coal-fired plant; and assets located across the length and breadth of the state, Stanwell is well placed to provide efficient and competitive power to Queenslanders well into the future.
In addition to its own assets, Stanwell also sells energy from Collinsville Power Station through an agreement with the station’s owners Transfield Services Infrastructure Fund. A coal supply agreement with Wesfarmers Resources’ Curragh Mine includes the sharing of revenue from their coal exports.[/learn_more] [learn_more caption=”CS Energy”]

Arrow’s activities are integrated, in that we cover the spectrum of coal seam gas activities ranging from exploration to production, transportation and electricity generation. We have developed and operate a strong domestic gas supply business and are currently working to explore and develop the vast and largely untapped coal seam gas resources in Queensland. This will underpin the creation of a new and highly valuable export market, based on conversion of coal seam gas to liquefied natural gas (CSG-LNG).
We currently produce gas from fields in the Surat Basin in south east Queensland and the Bowen Basin in central Queensland. With about 500 gas wells across these fields, Arrow is able to supply gas to the Townsville (235MW), Daandine (33MW) and Braemar 2 (450MW) power stations, as well as local and industrial users in Townsville, Moranbah and Brisbane.
Arrow estimates there is at least 70,000 petajoules of gas (which is equivalent, in energy terms, to more than 12 billion barrels of oil) contained within its portfolio of exploration tenements that cover approximately 50,000 km2 across Queensland and northern New South Wales. This vast energy resource offers many opportunities to support both the domestic needs for energy for Queensland, as well as to support our proposed CSG-LNG export facility, which will be built on Curtis Island, off Gladstone.
Arrow realises that we will touch upon many in the communities where we work. We want to establish good relations with people living in those communities and get the balance right between the social, environmental and economic aspects of our projects. Arrow is committed to keeping people informed of our plans and activities, and responding to their questions and concerns. [/learn_more] [learn_more caption=”Beach Energy”]
