What we do
Shell businesses in Australia are part of the Shell Group, a global group of energy and petrochemical companies. Our aim is to meet the energy needs of society, in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in the future.
Shell Australia’s focus turned to natural gas after the divestment of the Australian refining and fuels businesses in 2014. We continue to invest in and operate two gas production and liquefaction businesses: Shell’s QGC onshore gas in Queensland and the Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility offshore of Western Australia. High quality Shell branded fuels and lubricants are still available right across Australia, through an exclusive brand license arrangement with Viva Energy.
In 2019, Shell Australia also entered the power sector via the acquisition of one of Australia’s leading commercial and industrial retailers and traders, ERM Power, now known as Shell Energy. In renewable power, Shell Australia is building an industrial-scale solar project in Queensland, which is designed to generate around 120 megawatts of solar electricity, and has taken a 49% stake in ESCO Pacific, a developer of utility-scale solar farms.
In 2020, Shell Australia acquired Select Carbon, a leading Australian-based environmental services company that specialises in carbon farming. This is Shell’s first acquisition globally for its Nature-Based Solutions business, which invests in forests, grasslands, wetlands and other natural ecosystems around the world to reduce emissions and capture more CO2 while benefiting biodiversity and local communities.
Shell Australia is also a partner in a number of joint ventures, including the Gorgon LNG project and the North West Shelf project, and holds a 50% interest in Arrow Energy, a joint venture partnership with PetroChina.
