Easternwell provides essential food supplies to local farmer

The team from Easternwell’s Rig 101 provided essential food supplies to the local farmer whose property they were working on prior to demobilising the rig at the end of the contract.

 The rig has been providing drilling services for Origin, upstream operator of Australia Pacific LNG in Queensland’s CSG fields for the last 12 months.

As the rig was demobilising from the contract, essential food supplies such as rice and flour were no longer needed. Easternwell’s team provided the staples to the local farmer knowing these items are difficult to obtain in the shops with the COVID19 panic buying and customer volume restrictions.

The farmer and his family were very grateful and appreciative to receive these food items especially given the difficult times and minimal stock on supermarket shelves.  They also expressed their appreciation in saving them trips to town, as they have several family members in higher risk categories.

Thank you to our team for their generous and thoughtful gesture. It is humbling to see our team thinking of others in these challenging times.
