Santos is an Australian energy pioneer. We have safely and sustainably discovered, developed and delivered natural gas to the people of Australia and Asia for more than 65 years.

With origins in the Cooper Basin, Santos has one of the largest exploration and production acreages in Australia and extensive infrastructure.
