Five former Linc Energy executives have been committed to stand trial on an environmental charge linked to the operation of the company’s former UCG site near Chinchilla.

Former chief executive Peter Bond and four other former executives, Donald Schofield, Stephen Dumble, Jacobus Terblanche and Daryl Rattai, face a charge of failing to ensure a corporation complies with an Act.

Linc Energy, the operators of the Hopeland UCG site, was placed into liquidation in May 2016 with debts of about $289 million.

This followed legal action by the State Government against the company.

In April 2018, a jury found Linc Energy guilty of five counts of wilfully and unlawfully causing serious environmental harm.  The District Court judge imposed fines totalling $4.5 million on the company.
