Vietnam has been an important part of Santos’ Asia strategy since 2006, when Santos entered the Block 12W in the Nam Con Son Basin off the country's south coast.

Oil has been produced from the Chim Sáo field in Block 12W since October 2011.

Building on the success of Chim Sáo, the Dua oil project was developed as a tie-back to the facilities at Chim Sáo, and oil production commenced in July 2014.
