QGC Pty Limited (previously Queensland Gas Company) is part of the international BG Group which was created in 1996. BG Group acquired Queensland Gas Company in November 2008.
The company has an estimated value of around A$13 billion.
QGC is developing methane reserves within the Bowen and Surat Basins of Queensland.
The company has a gas plant called Kenya, which is located near Tara, Queensland. Three coal seam gas fields Lauren, Codie, and Kate are associated with the Kenya plant.
QGC is constructing a $15 billion coal seam gas methane liquefaction plant and gas export terminal on Curtis Island off the coast of Gladstone in Central Queensland.
The project includes a 540-kilometre, 1,070 mm diameter gas pipeline from Miles, Surat Basin to Gladstone.
Work was delayed in March 2011 when QGC was found to have contravened state environmental laws after land was cleared without appropriate approvals.
QGC says a contractor may have breached federal and state environmental conditions in clearing a six-kilometre-long, 40-metre-wide route for the pipeline near Dalby.
Tests done in
April and May 2010 found more than half of the wells in these gas fields were leaking methane.
