A sustainable future depends on Australian natural gas, and Santos is playing an important role in securing Australia’s economic, environmental and energy security future for generations to come.

We are committed to being a part of the solution to a low-carbon future by limiting greenhouse gas emissions, while providing access to reliable and affordable energy to domestic and global markets.

At Santos we are dedicated to being the safest oil and gas operator in Australia and preventing harm to people and the environment.

To do this we responsibly manage our environmental impact and work in partnership with the communities in which we operate. We are always focused on the health, safety and wellbeing of our people and reliably managing our business across all of the operations.
