Coho Group builds on more than a decade of success

Founded in Brisbane in 2012, the Coho Group is an Australian leader in complete fluid management and land spraying.

With hubs based in Roma, Miles and Dalby, Coho works in the oil and gas sector, mostly in the Surat Basin from Dalby to Rolleston and sometimes in the Northern Territory, New South Wales and South Australia.

Coho operates mostly in the Surat Basin but also further afield.

Drawing on real life experience, Coho operates in the areas of delivering drilling fluids, fluid management, inspection and production services, and all other facets of drilling and completions. 

Coupled with a strong commitment to safety and compliance, Coho leads the way in oil and gas transport operations.

Coho deploys and operates the largest custom fleet of vacuum trucks in Australia. Coho has pioneered oilfield vac trucks that are fit for purpose. Often imitated but never duplicated, the Coho land-spray vac trucks are an Australian first initiative.

Coho is involved in a number of different operations, most of which revolve around trucking. These include heavy vehicle support for workover, flush-by and completion rigs; vacuum tanker operations; transferring fluid from/between frac tanks, mud pumps, cement bins and tankers; removing waste contaminants from tanks using vacuum tankers; driving in various environments (e.g. bitumen, gravel roads, muddy terrain, rocky terrain, bull dust etc.); and the transport of waste fluid/solids to disposal facilities for treatment.

Other areas of the business include:

Landspray operations 

• The application of drilling cuttings onto approved land e.g. leases, paddocks and roads

• Support rig operations using a rigid truck and dog trailer

• Dust suppression

• Cleaning of rig tanks

• Transport of material between rig and mud processing facilities

• Cement jobs and transporting waste to waste disposal facilities

Flow back support transport

• Transporting water to and from site

• Filling required tanks and ponds

• Transport of waste fluid/solids to waste disposal for treatment

• Moving of operational equipment e.g. tanks and equipment from site to site

Employment opportunities are available

Coho Group has various employment opportunities available, with a current focus on candidates that can safely operate water and vac tankers to support drilling and completion rigs; safely operate semi and road train combinations (tankers and tautliners); haul freight; and thrive in labour intense roles that involve manual handling and lifting.

The point of hire is at Roma in Queensland. 

For successful applications, Coho provides on the job training, 12 hour shifts, 2/2 or 2/1 week rosters (depending on the operation), accommodation that’s based on site with meals provided and competitive hourly rates.

As many of Coho’s staff are family men and women, we understand the importance of being able to strike a work/life balance.
