Resources & Infrastructure

NIN has a strong commitment to ensuring local businesses and contractors have opportunities to engage with resource and infrastructure supply chains. 

Narrabri Shire is home to an emerging resource industry of coal and gas. Our region is estimated to contain around 12% of coal reserves available in NSW and enough natural gas to supply the NSW market for the next 50 years.

Our region is also in a key position for proposed state significant developments inline with the Inland Rail project & other potential development approvals.

NIN advocates for:

  • Investment and sustainable growth in our regional resources sector A commitment to ensuring Narrabri communities see benefits and continuous improvement of socio-economic and environmental standards from resource activities.
  • NIN provides research and engagement between coexisting industries, projects and businesses on local matters to ensure long term sustainability for all industries and our region.

In recent years, we have seen the shift towards the renewable energy sector on a domestic and global level.

With the combination of growing demand for clean energy, pre-existing developed industries and skills, this creates an exciting opportunity for our region to diversify furthermore, with vast slopes and plains in our scope.
