228th EVENT – THURSDAY 7th December 2017

Richard Cottee, MD of Central Petroleum (CTP)

This is much more than an overview of CTP and presents a candid overview by a highly regarded executive of the energy predicament facing Australia thanks to our State and Federal politicians; our Institutions and raft of regulatory bodies over the last decade.

Richard began his career in the resources sector in 1980 with Itochu Australia; he was involved in the Tarong Power Station construction and the development of the Newlands-Collinsville-Abbot Point projects. 

He was involved in the non-recourse project financing concerning Oaky Creek; negotiations of the Cooper Basin Liquids Scheme; a senior marketing role for Santos; responsibility for all commercial aspects of the development and the construction of the Jackson-Moonie Pipeline, other project roles through to the early 2000’s including Cyprus Amax, Oakbridge and CS Energy.

He became MD of Queensland Gas Company (QGC) in 2002 when it had a market capitalisation of $30 million. He took QGC from an early stage explorer to a major non-conventional gas supplier sold to the BG Group for $5.7 billion in 2008. Mr Cottee was appointed to the board of CTP in 2012.
