Senex buys goods and services from businesses in local communities wherever possible to encourage thriving rural and regional economies.
Spending money directly with the businesses who provide jobs and support local people provides Senex with many opportunities to keep our rural and regional economies strong.
We engage with local enterprises early, sharing updates and explaining the types of goods and services we are looking for locally. We also seek and respond to feedback so we know how we can make it work for everyone.
Meet some of our local suppliers
Building foundations at Roma North
For Condamine-based T&W Earthmoving, all roads lead to Roma North and Project Atlas. In 2019 the local earthmoving contractor was awarded a substantial contract to build the initial well sites
and access roads for our Surat Basin natural gas projects.
Filling rooms at the inn
At Project Atlas, the majority of Senex and contractor employees stay at the Accommodation Park and locally owned Bushlander Motel in Wandoan. Senex’s decision to use local motels instead of worker camps wherever possible has boosted the economies of Roma and Wandoan and supported jobs for local people.
Local lunches good for business
Senex awarded Roma’s family-owned Café 54 the contract to supply daily lunch packs for drilling rig crews. The contract provided a significant boost to the business, which employs 10 people across the café, tucker trucks and a catering business.
Local supplier delivers leading tech
In 2019, Senex signed a $1 million deal with Roma-based Huracan Pty Ltd to supply and install gauges for wells in both Project Atlas and Roma North. Huracan provided permanent pressure monitoring of each gas well – industry best practice from an innovative local supplier.
