Santos and GLNG JV partners to supply 30 PJ gas to east coast market in 2018 and 2019 By Martin Kovacs, 7 Sep 2017

Santos has advised that along with its GLNG joint venture partners it will supply 30 PJ of gas to the east coast domestic market over 2018 and 2019, to be sold to customers including power companies, which would otherwise have been exported as LNG.

Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher stated that over the last few months the company “has been working constructively with the federal government and our GLNG partners to supply additional gas to the east coast domestic market”.

“Thirty PJ is a material volume of gas which could power a 228 MW power station or 330,000 homes over the two-year period,” Gallagher commented. “It is further proof of our readiness to work with our partners in responding to market dynamics and meeting local gas demand, and I would like to thank them for their support.

“As an Australian company we are committed to improving energy reliability and affordability for all Australians, both householders and industry. We have been producing and marketing domestic gas for many years, and we have the capacity to leverage our various assets and partnerships to ensure this energy security.”
