Santos is currently undertaking an exploration and appraisal program in the Narrabri area to gain more information about the natural gas resource.
We are committed to conducting our activities in a manner that prevents injury or illness to members of the community, our employees, and our contractors, and encourage best practice in health and safety management.
Our drilling activities adhere to the highest industry standards to ensure natural gas is produced safely and the groundwater is protected.
Careful management and beneficial reuse of the water produced during our operations is one of our key focus areas.
The saline water we extract during our operations will be transported to our Water Storage Facility, outside the Pilliga.
The produced water will be treated and desalinated to meet relevant NSW and Commonwealth Governments’ guidelines for reuse.
