Former member of the land court of Queensland, Robert Scott, will conduct a review of the Queensland Gasfields Commission, who manage relationships between the gas industry, landholders and regional communities.

Mr Scott was previously a Deputy Director-General in the former Queensland Department of Lands and is an experienced mediator in land valuation, compensation and land use matters.

He has extensive experience with the challenges facing rural landholders and regional communities.

The Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA) has welcomed the announcement.

APPEA Queensland Director, Chris Lamont, said the review had been foreshadowed in 2015 and is timely as the Commission was established three years ago.

“The Queensland GasFields Commission has been highly effective in providing effective information and in promoting coexistence outcomes, this is a key function of the Commission and will continue to be important for both landholders and the gas industry,” Mr Lamont said

“Today a $70billion investment in gas projects continues to support thousands of jobs and strengthen Queensland’s economy and is helping the globe transition to a lower carbon future.

“APPEA looks forward to working with Mr Scott and assisting in the review.”
