Pilots and Resource Maturation Manager, Arrow Energy

I have had a pleasure of working with Symon Jackson in Arrow Energy for nearly 5 years. We originally engaged Symon for a single 400 ML pilot dam project, but this quickly grew to his involvement in almost every major geotechnical project in Arrow during that 5 year period. These projects have ranged from decommissioning of the smallest of earthen structures right through to the construction of multi-gigalitre high hazard brine dams and everything in between. Without exception, these have been complex projects from a design, construction and contractual perspective, but in particular from a regulatory approvals perspective. Symon’s real strength in these projects has been his ability to combine his unparalleled professional engineering expertise and experience with his tenacity in overcoming day-to-day project management challenges to consistently deliver projects of the highest technical and safety standards. Thanks for all your hard work and I wish you all the best in the future!


ATP Compliance Manager, Arrow Energy

I would like to say that Symon and his team at Red Earth Engineering were engaged at Arrow Energy to fulfill a short term technical assignment of constructing appraisal dams for our exploration and appraisal programs. This engagement extended to a four year period where Symon was instrumental in achieving cost savings in excess of $15m in the construction and remediation of our water and brine storage facilities. Symon is a consummate project management specialist who constantly sought and delivered innovative solutions to drive efficient and cost effective outcomes on a number of dam remediation projects with varied and difficult technical challenges. Symon integrated into the Arrow team in a seamless manner and was a well liked and highly respected member of our staff. During his time at Arrow Symon mentored and tutored many of his peers and was always happy to share his knowledge and experience. In his time at Arrow Energy, Symon with the help of Beneterra delivered a number of Queensland firsts in the remediation of appraisal dams; ahead of schedule and under budget using great project management skills outside of the square thinking. It has been a real pleasure to work with Symon and I have no hesitation recommending him and his team to any organisation looking for geotechnical advice or project management expertise. I am also more than willing to discuss Symons abilities and his time at Arrow over the phone if you should wish.


Water Development Manager, QGC

REE has been engaged for various scopes related to the design and construction of strategic QGC ponds. They are always willing to assist, often at short notice, and are an extremely reliable and dependable partner. Their expertise and professionalism is second to none. This coupled with their clear focus on delivery within budget and schedule make them a provider of choice.


Principal Brine Project Engineer, QGC

REE was engaged by QGC to provide geotechnical and Geosynthetic design advice on a technically challenging and critical infrastructure project. REE provided high quality and pragmatic advice with a very pro-active approach to the changing environment throughout the project. They were happy to provide input on items beyond their scope which shows their broad knowledge base and teamwork approach to servicing clients. I would be happy to work with them again and recommend the highly.


Study Manager Easter Leases Project, BHP Billiton GEMCO

REE undertook a geotechnical investigation for proposed haul roads and a number of water dams associated with the Eastern Leases Project on Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory. REE were proactive in managing their site based activities and turning around laboratory testing and reporting ahead of schedule. The technical content and interpretive reporting provided by REE was of a high standard, providing direction on the suitability of materials encountered for use as borrow source for construction. I would happily recommend REE.


Project Manager Yarwun RMA, Rio Tinto

Red Earth Engineering are the only engineering consultancy that I’ve worked with that consistently explores, listens too and responds to what we (the client) needs.
