Barossa Gas Project: Learn more

Australian natural gas company Santos today affirmed its commitment to Adelaide and South Australian jobs, where more than 300 positions have been added over the last two years.

In December 2019, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher told investors that Santos would keep its corporate centre and new Midstream and Energy Solutions businesses in South Australia.

At the same time Mr Gallagher said the company would centre its offshore upstream operations in Perth and onshore upstream operations in Brisbane.

Moomba employees and contractors who live in South Australia will continue to be based there.

However, some positions now based in Adelaide will move to Brisbane and others will move from Perth and Brisbane to Adelaide.

These changes will occur over the next 12 to 18 months, but overall Mr Gallagher said there will be no net reduction in Santos’ Adelaide and South Australian jobs.

“Our people are very important to us and we’ll be working closely with them as we start to implement these changes over the coming months. Santos is now a growing business with exciting growth projects in oil and natural gas all around Australia, and new business opportunities in infrastructure management, renewable energy, energy efficiency, carbon capture and storage, and investigation of hydrogen opportunities. Adelaide is our home and corporate centre, and we will be creating new, secure, high-skilled, well-paying jobs in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Darwin and regional Australia for many years to come.”
