Santos today advises that gas production at the PNG LNG Hides plant and the Kutubu gas facilities has been safely shut down as a precautionary measure following a major earthquake and a series of aftershocks in the Papua New Guinea highlands.

The company has been advised by PNG LNG operator ExxonMobil PNG that no staff or contractors have been injured as a result of these seismic events, and all personnel are safe and accounted for.

Production will remain shut-down whilst a full assessment of the impact of the earthquake is made.

Santos will keep the market advised of any material updates.
