Savanna Energy Services is a contract drilling and well servicing company based in Toowoomba in Queensland, working with the onshore gas industry.

The Canadian-based company, which set up operations in Queensland in response to the gas sector start-up, are a critical part of the supply chain which ensures natural gas is delivered to both domestic and export consumers.

"A lot of people involved; there's a lot of companies. (Savanna Energy) have 500 people and we work 24/7 to get (gas) to your plate," Lynn Beardmore, Transport Superintendent for Savannah Energy, said.

Like many businesses around the country, a heavy vehicle fleet is a spoke in the wheel to keep Savanna Energy operations running smoothly.

The relationship between the natural gas sector and the trucking industry is a fundamental one: from transporting equipment between sites to moving liquified natural gas (LNG), more importantly they both work with regional communities.

Queensland Trucking Association chief executive officer Gary Mahon said regional communities are reliant on road freight transport to deliver services, products and supplies into their towns.

"With 85 per cent of freight in Queensland moved within the state, the road freight industry is one that contributes a leading role in our state," he said.

"We are proud to have Savanna Energy as our members who feature in this latest episode. They provide vital services to the resources sector and trucks play a key role in their operations."

The sentiment is echoed by the national trucking body, the Australian Trucking Association chief executive officer Ben Maguire.

"The ATA and the natural gas sector have a strong connection as we both represent industries that are a vital part of the Australian way of life," he said.

"The backbone of both our industries lie in the regional and rural towns of Australia. Whether it's local transport companies or the natural gas projects based near regional communities, we support communities, local jobs and small businesses."
