5,000 FIFO/DIDO workers forecast for Surat Basin

OESR released its latest Surat Basin Population report on Friday, and it shows a big expected jump in fly in-fly out (FIFO) and drive in-drive out (DIDO) workers in the region in 2012 (see figure below).

OESR notes:

The projected number of non-resident workers on-shift are likely to increase sharply in 2012 as large- scale construction activity begins on CSG and coal projects (Table 6, Figure 1). Numbers are expected to peak at around 4,930 in 2013 and then decline steadily as large construction workforces are reduced and smaller operational workforces take over completed mining and gas projects.
