Santos has explored for oil and gas in the north-east of South Australia since 1954 and south-west Queensland since 1962.
Santos produces sales gas, ethane, crude oil and gas liquids from the basin. Sales gas and ethane are processed at both the Moomba and Ballera plants, with liquids transported to Port Bonython for crude oil and gas liquids processing.
Ballera is located onshore central Australia, south-west Queensland, approximately 90 kilometres east of the South Australia-Queensland border and about 950 kilometres north of Adelaide.
South-west Queensland crude oil is processed at Jackson, and then transported to Port Bonython via Moomba.
