The GasField Commission of Queensland have announced a new chair and commissioners, a governance specialist and an Indigenous Elder to oversee the State’s gas and landholder relations. 

The Indigenous Elder and traditional owner is from the Nywaigi People and Mamu People. 

Queensland Resources Minister, Scott Stewart, announced John Anderson as chair of the GasFields Commission of Queensland for the next three years.

Mr Anderson will chair an expanded group of five part-time commissioners, three of them existing commissioners who have been re-appointed, and two new appointees.

He was also appointed as the Commission’s first community representative commissioner.

Head of the Australian Sugar Milling Council, Rachele Sheard, and Dalby-based Jane Walker, are the new commissioners, with Stuart Armitage, Rebecca Pickering and Shalene McClure re-appointed as commissioners.

“Agriculture and resources are multi-billion-dollar industries that support thousands of jobs and help underpin Queensland’s economy and regional communities,” Mr Stewart said.

“For the resources industry to continue to thrive in Queensland, positive relationships between resources companies, landholders, First Nations people, and communities are essential.

“Mr Anderson is a First Peoples’ engagement specialist with extensive governance experience.

“The GasFields Commission provides critical independent regulatory oversight of our $70 billion onshore gas industry.”

“The Commission is fundamental to maintaining the productive co-existence of our gas and food and fibre industries, and the communities in which they operate.”
