Senex Energy has awarded a $3 million contract to Roma based business, Flower Earthmoving, as part of its Western Surat Gas Project.
The contract will see the family-owned business complete civil earth works on Senex’s gas tenements, located around 30 kilometres north east of Roma in Queensland. The work involves the preparation of lease pads, the forming of new access roads and the refurbishment of an existing dam.
Senex Energy Managing Director Ian Davies said that the award to Flower Earthmoving reflected a competitive procurement process and putting Senex’s local content policy into practice.
“Senex is based in Queensland, and as a small to medium size oil and gas company operating in the Surat Basin we are keen to support local businesses. Our Surat local content policy favours suppliers based in the region and who can provide the services we need at the right price.
“We plan to be part of the community for many years, and supporting local businesses who can deliver the work we require ensures we are contributing to a sustainable and economically vibrant Maranoa,” Mr Davies said.
Flower Earthmoving Operations Manager Byron Flower said he was proud to win the competitive bid on price and capability. “This contract with Senex will generate ongoing work for approximately 20 locals in the next four months and we look forward to delivering the project,” Mr Flower said.
