BG Group has agreed to sell its wholly-owned subsidiary QCLNG Pipeline Pty Ltd to APA Group, of Australia, for approximately US$5.0 billion.

QCLNG Pipeline Pty Ltd owns a 543 kilometre, large-diameter underground pipeline network linking BG Group's natural gas fields in southern Queensland to a two-train liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility at Gladstone on Australia's east coast. The sale of this non-core infrastructure is consistent with BG Group's strategy of actively managing its global asset portfolio.

The pipeline was constructed between 2011 and 2014 and has a current book value of US$1.6 billion. Tariffs payable on the pipeline are set to provide a fixed rate of return on the asset base with the primary tariff components escalating annually with US inflation indices. For the year ended 31 December 2016, the pipeline tariff is expected to deliver to APA Group EBITDA of approximately US$390 million.
