  • 2P reserves mix comprises 84% gas and 16% liquids.
  • 2C contingent resources increased to 3,325 mmboe at the end of 2023 with a positive revision to the Tanumbirini field of 108 mmboe.
  • We continue to hold 2P CO2 storage capacity of 9 million tonnes and 2C contingent storage resource increased by 40 million tonnes to 131 million tonnes in Cooper Basin.

Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher said the company was pleased to release its Annual Reserves Statement, highlighting strong overall reserves replacement and a large increase in its CO2 storage capacity in the Cooper Basin.

“Today’s statement is the result of Santos’ disciplined annual reserves review and accounting processes, which include external audit of approximately 99 per cent of total 2P reserves. It’s also pleasing adding another 40 million tonnes of 2C CO2 storage, further evidence of Santos building on its decarbonisation strategy,” Mr Gallagher said.
