Amadeus Basin

The Amadeus Basin is located in the south of the Northern Territory, covering an area of approximately 170,000 square kilometres.

Santos interests in the Amadeus Basin are on the traditional lands of the Arrernte, Luritja and Yankunytjatjara peoples.

Santos is the leading Australian oil and gas exploration and production company in the Northern Territory, and has a long history of supplying gas to the local market from its Mereenie operations, located west of Alice Springs.

Santos also has an exploration interest in the southern Amadeus Basin, which includes 1,800 kilometres of seismic surveying and the drilling of the Mt Kitty exploration well in 2014.
