Santos has provided an update to the NSW Government on a complaint lodged in October last year that an area of approximately 1.2 hectares of the Pilliga State Forest was impacted by the operations of Eastern Star Gas during 2011.

The preliminary outcome of Santos’ investigation of the matter is that Eastern Star identified a release of approximately 10,000 litres of untreated CSG water in June 2011 which the NSW Government has advised was not reported to the regulator at the time.

Santos continues to assist the investigation being conducted by the Department of Trade and Investment, Regional Infrastructure and Services. Upon the conclusion of the investigation Santos will work with the Government and Forestry NSW to ensure the area impacted is fully remediated.

Santos took over Eastern Star Gas on 17 November 2011 and is currently reviewing all of their plans, systems and activities. Santos is now the operator and is committed to operating to the highest standards, including remediation as required.
