The standard unit of measurement for all production and sales. One barrel = 159 litres or 35 imperial gallons.
Billion cubic feet, a billion defined as 1,000,000,000. On average 1 bcf of sales gas = 1.055 petajoules.
Barrels of oil equivalent. The factor used by Santos to convert volumes of different hydrocarbon production to barrels of oil equivalent.
Barrels of oil per day.
Those quantities of hydrocarbons which are estimated, on a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations, but which are not currently considered to be commercially recoverable. Contingent resources may be of a significant size, but still have constraints to development. These constraints, preventing the booking of reserves, may relate to lack of gas marketing arrangements or to technical, environmental or political barriers.

D, D & A
Depreciation, depletion and amortisation of building, plant and equipment, exploration and development expenditure.
Comprises two categories: near-field exploration wells and appraisal wells. Near-field exploration wells are wells located near existing fields/discoveries and have a higher expectation of success than wildcat exploration wells. These wells test independent structures or traps and have a higher risk of failure than appraisal or development wells. An appraisal well is a well drilled for the purpose of identifying extensions to known fields or discoveries.
Wells designed to produce hydrocarbons from a gas or oil field within a proven productive reservoir defined by exploration or appraisal drilling.
Earnings before interest and tax.
Earnings before interest and tax, depreciation, depletion and amortisation of building, plant and equipment, exploration and development expenditure and amortisation of goodwill.
finding cost per barrel of oil equivalent
Exploration and delineation expenditure per annum divided by reserve additions net of acquisitions and divestments.
Solid, liquid or gas compounds of the elements hydrogen and carbon.
Liquefied natural gas.
Liquefied petroleum gas, the name given to propane and butane in their liquid state.
mean resource potential
The average of the range of recoverable resources.
Million barrels of oil equivalent.
Million standard cubic feet per day.
Crude oil, condensate, or its derivative naphtha, and the liquefied petroleum gases propane and butane.
Petajoules. Joules are the metric measurement unit for energy. A petajoule equals 1,000,000,000,000,000 joules. The equivalent imperial measure to joules is British Thermal Units (BTU). One
kilojoule = 0.9478 BTU.
Proven reserves (1P)
Proven reserves (1P) are those reserves that, to a high degree of certainty (90% confidence), are recoverable. There is relatively little risk associated with these reserves. Proven developed reserves are reserves that can be recovered from existing wells with existing infrastructure and operating methods. Proven undeveloped reserves require development.
Proven plus Probable reserves (2P)
Proven plus Probable reserves (2P) are those reserves that analysis of geological and engineering data suggests are more likely than not to be recoverable. There is at least a 50% probability that reserves recovered will exceed Proven plus Probable reserves.
Proven, Probable plus Possible reserves (3P)
Proven, Probable plus Possible reserves (3P) are those reserves that, to a low degree of certainty (10% confidence), are recoverable. There is relatively high risk associated with these reserves.
Production sharing contract.
reserve replacement cost per barrel of oil equivalent
Exploration, delineation and development expenditure per annum divided by reserve additions net of acquisitions and divestments. Development includes all development and fixed asset expenditure net of stay-in-business and corporate capital expenditure.
Resource potential refers to those quantities of petroleum yet to be discovered. It may refer to single opportunities or a group of opportunities.
Return on average equity.
Return on average capital employed.

Trillion cubic feet.
Terajoules. Joules are the metric measurement unit for energy. A terajoule equals 1,000,000,000,000 joules.
total recordable case frequency rate (TRCFR)
A statistical measure of safety performance. Total recordable case frequency rate is calculated as the total number of recordable cases (medical treatment injuries and lost time injuries) per million hours worked. A lost time injury is a work-related injury or illness that results, or would result, in a permanent disability or time lost of one complete shift or day or more any time after the injury or illness. A medical treatment injury is a work-related injury or illness, other than a lost time injury, where the injury is serious enough to require more than minor first aid treatment. Santos classifies injuries that result in modified duties as medical treatment injuries.
Exploration wells testing new play concepts or structures distanced from current fields.
