Who we are

Santos


Santos is an Australian energy pioneer.

We have safely and sustainably discovered, developed and delivered natural gas to the people of Australia and Asia for more than 60 years.

With origins in the Cooper Basin, Santos has one of the largest exploration and production acreages in Australia and extensive infrastructure. Our strategy is centred on a portfolio of long-life natural gas and LNG assets. These assets support our aim to be a leading Australian domestic gas supplier and a major LNG exporter supplying clean energy to Asia. We are now proudly and biggest domestic gas producer in Western Australia, and are continuing to strengthen our offshore operations and enhance opportunities across Western and Northern Australia portfolios.

Our Operations:

The Santos operating model centres on the exploration, development, production and sale of natural gas. Operations are supported by a lean corporate centre and a disciplined cost structure to create value for our shareholders while delivering reliable, affordable energy to our customers.

Our business is focussed on five core, long-life natural gas and LNG assets: PNG, Northern Australia, Western Australia Gas, GLNG and Cooper Basin. These assets support our strategy to become a leading Australian domestic gas supplier and a major LNG exporter supplying clean energy to Asia. Our aim is to develop a portfolio of exploration and development opportunities around our five core assets, while seeking to discover and develop additional core assets that align with our strategy. In addition Santos operates smaller assets in the Asia, New South Wales and Western Australia Oil (ANWA) division. These assets have been separated from Santos’ core business and will be run for value.
