About us

A proudly Australian company, Santos is a leading supplier of natural gas, a fuel for the future, providing cleaner energy to improve the lives of people in Australia and Asia.

Our focus is to grow our clean fuels capability for zero-emissions LNG, hydrogen and other products through carbon capture and storage, nature-based offsets, energy efficiency and use of renewables in our operations.

Underpinned by a diverse portfolio of high-quality natural gas, oil and strategic infrastructure assets across Australia, Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea and North America, Santos continues to deliver long-term value to shareholders.

Recognised for our disciplined, low-cost operating model, Santos is resilient throughout the commodity price cycle.

For more than 65 years, Santos is proud to be working in partnership with local communities, providing Australian jobs and business opportunities, safely and sustainably developing Australia’s natural gas resources, and powering Australian industries and households.

We are acting on climate change

In December 2020, Santos committed to and announced a credible pathway to achieve net-zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2040, including new industry-leading emission reduction targets that build on its existing 2025 targets. 

Santos is already working to align our business with Paris Agreement’s central goal to limit global temperature rise this century to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
