Our Communities


Beach’s long-term sustainability is contingent upon maintaining strong and meaningful relationships with the communities in which we operate.

Beach seeks to create and maintain long-term relationships that ensure we make a positive contribution to these communities.

Explore our community partnerships

We engage transparently with communities about our operations, consulting, listening and understanding their concerns and addressing them wherever we can.

Our regional managers are available at all times to connect with landholders, clubs and organisations, councils, and other members of the community.

Beach also contributes to regional economies by hiring locally and procuring local goods and services where possible, by paying royalties and taxes, and by investing locally in the form of sponsorships, local infrastructure improvements, and student work opportunities.

Enterprise – Otway Basin, Victoria

The Enterprise Project is a program to develop additional offshore natural gas reservoirs in the Victorian Otway Basin. The potential reservoirs are located offshore, up to 3 nautical miles (5.55 km) from the coastline, while the well site will be located onshore near Port Campbell.

Stakeholder consultation is an important part of preparing the project’s  Environment Management Plan as it helps identify local issues and concerns and ensures our planning manages potential impacts.

Beach has commenced engagement with local land holders and community
members and is keen to hear from any community members who would like further information or have any questions about this project. Download the information sheet by clicking the button below to learn more.
