The Brisbane River Management Group, a division of the Queensland Environmental Protection Agency, consisting of stakeholders and Brisbane River user groups, had identified the need for a scoping study to investigate the lack of public refuelling facilities for small craft on the Brisbane River. CGR, together with environmental and public relations consultants, was commissioned to identify past, present and projected future usage of small craft refuelling facilities on the Brisbane River.

CGR’s tasks included the identification of past marine refuelling sites, collection of past and current fuel usage volumes by contacting community groups, commercial river users and government, facilitation of two stakeholder workshops, investigate refuelling best practice and preparation of facility construction cost estimates at identified sites.

CGR produced two Options Papers containing the findings of the study and included recommendations for future work.
