The Shell-operated QGC venture is located in Queensland, Australia.
QGC is one of Australia's leading natural gas producers, focused on developing Queensland's world-class onshore gas reserves.
We have supplied the domestic market since 2006 and international customers since 2014. In 2017, we will supply more than 75 petajoules of gas to Australian customers, representing more than 10% of east coast gas demand and 40% of Queensland demand.
QGC produces natural gas from wells drilled into coal seams in the Surat Basin. Our operations include more than 2,600 production wells, 24 field compression stations, six central processing plants, two water treatment plants and a two-train LNG export facility on Curtis Island.
Shell is the operator and majority interest holder in the QGC venture. Our partners in the LNG plant on Curtis Island are CNOOC (50% equity in Train 1) and Tokyo Gas (2.5% equity in Train 2).
