According to the announcement by McNab, the company, based in Toowoomba, in South East Queensland, was one of two contractors that were chosen by Santos to undertake all ongoing building, civil and maintenance works on Santos’ building infrastructure throughout Queensland.

“We have been working on Santos projects in the Surat Basin for a number of years, and are thrilled to support Santos as they move into the operational phase of their GLNG project,” said McNab Managing Director, Michael McNab.

McNab is in the business of providing construction, civil, maintenance and environmental services on many of the largest energy projects that are currently being constructed in Queensland.

The company also collaborates with many resource companies including leaders Anglo American and BHP Billiton.

“Awarding long term contracts to business in the region is not just good corporate citizenship, it makes smart business sense as well,” Mr McNab said.

Santos is a leading oil and gas producer that supplies the domestic and Asian markets. The company is also renowned for having the largest exploration and production acreage in Australia.

The Santos contract is another great achievement for McNab, following the achievement of a 0.00 Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate and over 2.5 million hours without a Lost Time Injury.
