Santos CEO David Knox struts his stuff on the energy bike.
Santos' famed energy bike has made its debut at the annual APPEA conference, attracting plenty of interest from the event's 3,000 attendees.
The energy bike, a popular feature of Santos' tents at the Santos Tour Down Under, measures the peak amount of wattage the rider produces in a short burst of cycling. Riders' results are ranked on a Top Gear-style scoreboard.
Santos CEO David Knox has been one of the more impressive performers to date, clocking 948 watts to retain a position in the top ten. The highest score so far has been 1,197 watts.
APPEA – the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association – is the representative body for the oil and gas industry in Australia. This year's conference is being held in Perth, and Santos again has a significant presence underlining its prominence in the Australian oil and gas sector.
Santos' has a booth that highlights the company's operations and community support in Western Australia and the Northern Territory, its broader strategy, operations and community program, and consolidates its cycling support.
Santos' Manager Climate Change & Sustainability, Susie Smith, spoke on the topic of low-emission technology, while Principal Adviser Indigenous Affairs, Craig Jones, discussed Aboriginal engagement in the resources sector.
To further develop its professional relationships, Santos has also hosted a breakfast for Santos employees in Perth, supported daily early-morning cycles around the streets of Perth led by professional West Australian cycling team Plan B, and hosted a cocktail function for key industry and government figures.
