The Territory’s best days are ahead with a growing natural gas industry.

Support Santos Australian natural gas to help to secure the Territory's future.

Natural gas is a clean, reliable and cost effective fuel that is fundamental to Australian life. From heating your home, to firing your BBQ, or fuelling local industry, Santos natural gas helps power our country, creating thousands of local jobs in the process.

The Northern Territory has abundant natural gas reserves located in shale rock. Enabling natural gas to be safely extracted from shale rock could increase NT Government revenues by almost $1 billion and create up to 6,300 jobs in regional areas.

Since 1954, South Australia Northern Territory Oil Search (Santos) has developed and delivered energy and jobs to the Northern Territory. We are the only Australian joint venture partner in Darwin LNG and for many years we were the main supplier of domestic gas to NT from the Mereenie facility.

Santos’ onshore operations span the MacArthur, Beetaloo and Amadeus Basins. We respect your Territory, and we will work with Government, local communities, traditional owners, landholders and businesses to safely and responsibly develop your shale gas resources.
