How we operate

Walloons is the aggregator of natural gas for the QCLNG venture and is responsible for managing the delivery of natural gas to the QCLNG terminal on Curtis Island, as well as for domestic marketing and trading of gas associated with the QCLNG venture.

Although Shell is a participant in the QCLNG venture, Shell also participates in the Australian east coast domestic gas market through its wholly owned Shell Energy Australia business, which operates separately from Walloons.

Information management protocols are in place to prevent the flow of sensitive customer and marketing information between the ringfenced teams of Walloons and Shell Energy. This ring-fencing protocol allows the two entities to act independently of each other.
