Support Respect Balance for rural landholders, regional communities and the onshore gas industry

The GasFields Commission Queensland is a vital reference source for rural landholders, regional communities and the onshore gas industry in Queensland.

By facilitating connections across the natural gas and agricultural sectors, business community and government, we aim to create an environment conducive to economic growth and innovation in rural and regional communities.

How can we help?

The GasFields Commission is an independent statutory authority with a charter to educate, engage and inform about all aspects of Queensland’s gas industry.

To assist us to deliver these services we have a network of locally based officers who are able to identify emerging and legacy issues, recommend options to remedy problems and assist with information in response to questions or concerns.
