Santos is committed to ensuring the security of its personnel, assets and operations.

Santos has plans, resources and capabilities in place to protect personnel, assets and operations from security threats and to minimise negative social or environmental impacts of our operations on local communities.

Santos maintains a security framework which enables effective security management arrangements through:

  • Detailed intelligence and threat analysis.
  • Identification of security risks via security detailed risk assessments.
  • Development of robust security management plans tailored for the location and risk environment.
  • Maintenance of an active security culture across all Santos business units and functions through regular training and awareness programs.

This framework is outlined in our Environment, Health and Safety Management System security standard which describes the controls associated with security in Santos across the following issues: 

  • National security
  • Critical infrastructure protection
  • International operations
  • New country entry
  • Special risks
  • Information management
  • Travel security
  • Physical security
  • Personnel security
  • Executive protection.

To assist in managing security risks, Santos maintains collaborative relationships with governments and communities through active liaison, information sharing and memberships both formal and informal on government and industry bodies.

Our security framework standard and guidelines reference the Voluntary Principles of Security and Human Rights.
