Guid­ing a steady ship at QGC

Central Telegraph - - CQ INDUSTRY -

THE next 12 months is about build­ing re­silience at Shell’s QGC, man­ager Peter Nor­man has re­vealed in a CQIn­dus­try Q and A.

Mr Nor­man said the busi­ness was now “con­sol­i­dat­ing af­ter the storm” – the storm be­ing the boom years when three liq­ue­fied nat­u­ral gas plants, in­clud­ing Shell’s, were built on Cur­tis Is­land be­fore 2014.

Now his busi­ness’s chal­lenges are to re­main cost­com­pet­i­tive and safer amid a highly com­pet­i­tive mar­ket.

“We are here for the long run but must earn the right for fur­ther in­vest­ment in a highly com­pet­i­tive world,” he said.

Mr Nor­man also shared some of the lighter sides to his life, in­clud­ing drink­ing cof­fee with char­ac­ter, his en­joy­ment of surf­ing and his vast mu­sic in­ter­ests from Rus­sian disco to Pink Floyd.
