IPBC opens Brisbane office for LNG watch

Business, Main Stories


THE Independent Public Business Corp (IPBC) opened an office in Brisbane recently and is manned by chief executive officer Glenn Blake.
Mr Blake has been operating out of Brisbane since his appointment several years ago and only recently opened a proper office.
He is now advertising for a project analyst to work with him in Brisbane whose primary role is to oversee and monitor the K42 billion PNG liquified natural gas (LNG) project.
The advertisement for the IPBC’s project analyst was published in the Brisbane daily newspaper, Courier Mail by advertising agency, Northern Recruitment.
The advertisement read in part: “In the role of project analyst, you will be located in IPBC’s Brisbane office, report to the general manager LNG and support a small team based in Port Moresby. You will develop and use the necessary tools to undertake very detailed modelling, forecasting, analysis, interpretation and reporting to identify and report against potential risks and benefits.”
The successful applicant would also be required to liaise with ExxonMobil, project operator and other stakeholders and monitor their contractual and stakeholder agreements to ensure accurate compliance and fulfillment.
The person IPBC is looking for must have initial training in commerce, engineering or both and must be a “self-starter with unflappable personality and indefatigable work ethic,” the advertisement said.
If this advertisement is not in the local newspapers, IPBC is obviously looking for an expatriate for the job.
The IPBC has a 16.6% stake in the project which was given the green-light to go ahead last Tuesday.
