BG Group is an energy company with interests in exploration, production and transmission of fossil fuels, primarily natural gas. The company is a constituent of the FTSE 100 share price index. The company is based in Reading, UK although over 60% of BG's business is generated overseas with the company operating in 27 countries. The company began as a part of British Gas plc, the privatised energy supplier in the UK. In 1997 the company was divided into Centrica and the BG Group. Centrica now operates the 'British Gas' brand within the UK and focuses primarily on retail energy sales. In 2000, BG Group announced the demerger of the 'Lattice Group' which would operate Transco, the UK infrastructure operating business and Advantica, gas engineering consultancy services. This allowed the group to focus on exploration and production.

The company divides itself into four divisions: Exploration and Production, Liquified Natural Gas, Transmission and Distribution, and Power. The company intends to continue its focus on gas although it still has small interests in oil exploration. Liquified Natural Gas is expected to be a driver of growth in the use of natural gas due to cheaper costs of transportation and the ability to transport without the needs for loads to be kept at high pressure. In 2007 BG Group had a total operating income of £8.3 billion, with an operating profit of £3.2 billion, and employed around 5,000 people (over two thirds of these being based in interests outside of the UK).
