Downs farmers have a new support service & GasHaz app in their corner with Molliwell opening an office at 69B Heeney St Chinchilla


Molliwell offers services supporting farmers and community members in the Downs and wider area impacted by unconventional gas as well as traditional Health, Safety & Environment issues. Great support has been shown for these services and this has led to the opening of a new office for Molliwell.


Shay Dougall announced the opening of the new office in Chinchilla’s main shopping precinct. She said “I am excited and delighted to announce the opening of this office in this new location. It strengthens the presence and the need for such services, many offices in the area house businesses that service the Gas Industry, finally the farmers and locals have a little corner of the community dedicated to them and their interests in this field.” 


“Farmers and community are the forgotten part of the gas supply chain. They are required to host the industry. What that really means is a lot of time, research, preparation and ongoing management on the farmer’s behalf. This office is more than a work space, I want it to be a place that affected farmers and members of the community feel they can come in, have a chat and a coffee, get moral support and if necessary some expert and professional backing in dealing with the complexities of being required to host the unconventional gas industry.”


To celebrate the opening of this new, strategically important office, Molliwell is holding an “Open House” event on Friday 1 November from 4.30pm – 7.30 pm.  Full details of the event are available on the web site at


We offer general health, safety & environment consultancy services including Safety Management Systems, Bio-Security Plans, Safe Work Method Statements, Job Safety Analysis, and support to meet Contractor /  Supplier qualification systems.


But the unique and most exciting development is our GasHAZ services.  These include supporting our recently launched FREE GasHAZ APP, a “see, snap and send” app for support on gas industry issues for host farmers and community members. We can also assist with baseline testing (soil, water, air), Professional Auditing and Reporting Services, where we identify WHS impacts of the gas industry on host farmer workplaces.  We can liaise with your advisory team to ensure these issues are addressed and support you in CSG Access & Dispute Negotiations and the day-to-day management of the industry activities on your property.  We support all of this by providing and maintaining a private, password protected web page for your data and records.


“Come on down, you won’t be able to miss us! It will be our pleasure to meet new and existing customers along with suppliers, partners, colleagues and friends on Friday 01 November to celebrate the services we are making available to the Downs and wider community”, added Shay.
