The next Luncheon hosted by the Queensland Petroleum Exploration Association (QUPEX) will be held on Tuesday 11 June.

The luncheon will feature Vince Sanfilippo, General Manager Qld and PNG, from CPB Contractors presenting on the topic: Collaborating to sustain gas production and improve overall productivity – The value invested contractors bring to clients.


Vince is CPB Contractors General Manager for Queensland and Papua New Guinea where he leads all aspects of the $1b construction business including business development, tendering and project delivery for infrastructure and more specifically, for supporting Coal Seam Gas clients in Queensland. Most recently, this includes CPB Contractors’ successful bids as part of the CIMIC led Pulse consortium and Unity Alliance for the two major Cross River Rail works packages – the Tunnels Stations and Development (TSD) package and the Rail, Integration and Systems (RIS) package.

Presentation outline: Key to the success of the ongoing APLNG upstream program is the collaborative working relationship between Principal Contractor – CPB Contractors – and agent and operator – Origin Energy: a relationship which has developed and grown over more than six years. The collaborative partnership in a competitive environment has evolved to a point where trust simplicity and removal of duplication is fundamental to the way we work together.

Vince Sanfilippo will discuss how the relationship and journey undertaken over the last couple of years has contributed to productivity increases, and how the collaborative approach to reducing complexity and scope has reduced delivery costs for Origin. He will outline how CPB has supported Origin through their $1m well initiative which sparked organisational change, including reducing APLNG overheads, how the ‘one team’ culture has been strongly supported by CPB’s commitment to long-term continuity of resources, and how contractor-led innovation and direct interface with Origin’s suppliers has provided increased value for a decreased cost.
