Gladstone Futures summit set to reveal LNG announcements

THE 2013 Gladstone Region Futures Summit got underway this morning, with breakfast and some Australian-style comedy.

GAPDL chief executive Glenn Churchill has hinted there could be some major announcements in relation to LNG developments on Curtis Island at the summit today.

Arrow Energy is set to speak about future developments on the island, while post-construction working environments would also be discussed.

Kevin Berg, general manager of Bechtel's Curtis Island LNG project, will also discuss his company's work as it reaches final stages.

So far, Australian sporting legend Sam Kekovich has delivered a rousing post-breakfast speech on why he's proud to be an Australian.

More than 100 guests are attending the summit, which will probe every aspect of the Gladstone region's future and development.

Organisers GAPDL have also revealed a new jingle that will promote the Gladstone region.
