ORIGIN'S Condabri Camp, south of Miles, has been permanently closed at the end of October and transitioned its workforce into local communities.

The closure of the 400-bed capacity camp was celebrated officially by Origin Energy, Western Downs Regional Council, Miles and District Chamber of Commerce and Warrego Member for Parliament Ann Leahy.

Western Down Regional Council Mayor Paul McVeigh said he was more than enthusiastic about the future and longevity of the Coal Seam Gas industry and the camp closure was a celebration of building our communities.

"It has been a tremendous learning curve,” Cr McVeigh said.

"This is just the start of a greater journey and it is building our community.”

Origin Energy General Manager Reputation Rebecca Pickering said the camp was the first of its kind that Origin Energy ever built.

"It's not a sad occasion, we are just at a milestone in our operations,” Ms Pickering said.

Warrego Member of Parliament Ann Leahy said the closure of the camp after the five-year operation was a celebration of what the communities and the company had achieved.
