QLD Group established in July 2010 & it`s still at it`s
infancy stage

Similar model to WA – in partnership with SPE and mainly
focus on Technical Events

Current 4 Committee members and hold 4 events

Focus on Facilities aspect of industry and multidisciplinary group that involve Process, Civil & Structural,
Electrical & Instruments, Mechanical & Pipeline
Engineering
There are already 4 Association and Societies in this industry

Upstream Sector (Exploration & Production)
Upstream include searching for potential Underground or Underwater Oil & Gas
fields, drilling of exploratory wells, and subsequently operating the wells that recover
and bring these hydrocarbons to the surface

Midstream Sector
Midstream include Processing at Surface , Storage & Transporting these Hydrocarbons
to the Downstream Sector

Downstream Sector
Downstream include Refining and Distribution of Hydrocarbons and their products
and consist of Oil Refineries, Petrochemical Plants, Petroleum Product distribution,
Retail outlets and conventional/unconventional Gas distribution companies.
