Natural gas generation, distribution and retailing
AGL Energy sells and markets natural gas, electricity and energy related products and services to more than 3.8 million residential and business customer accounts across New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland. It has large investments in the supply of gas and electricity, and is Australia's largest private owner, operator and developer of renewable energy assets.
The Australian Gas Light Company was formed in Sydney in 1837, and supplied town gas for the first public lighting of a street lamp in Sydney in 1841. AGL was also the second company to list on the Australian Stock Exchange. The company gradually diversified into electricity and into a number of different locations.
In 2014, AGL Energy (Australia) launched its Compressed Natural Gas offering to Australian businesses for transport. AGLs plan is to launch public refuelling stations across Australia that will help with the supply (or lack thereof) issue Australian CNG users currently face.

2Under a 50-year project agreement that commenced in 2000, AGL has no effective exploration rights (or ongoing cost obligations) within exploration tenement ATP 1103 as these were assigned to Arrow Energy Limited. However, AGL is entitled to participate up to a 50% interest in any commercial development by contributing its share of past costs.
Notes: 2P or proved plus probable reserves, are those quantities of gas that are estimated with equal certainty to be greater than or less than actual commercially recoverable quantities. 2C resources are considered not yet commercially recoverable. Consistent with new ASX Listing Rules reporting requirements, gas reserves are now reported net of 'lease fuel' i.e. net of estimated own use fuel consumption upstream of the point of sale.
