Australia’s Santos inks 2nd gas supply deal with Wesfarmers
Australian LNG operator Santos has entered into a second contract to supply natural gas to compatriot Wesfarmers.
Under the deal, Santos will supply up to 34 PJ of gas to Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy & Fertilisers (WesCEF) over 4 years.
It follows an agreement last month to supply approximately 28 PJ of gas to WesCEF over 3 years.
Santos Executive Vice President, Marketing and Trading, Philip Byrne, said this latest contract reinforced Santos’ position as a major producer of domestic gas in the Western Australian market.
“We produce only domestic gas in WA and it’s a business we are keen to grow,” he said.
Santos has a number of domestic gas exploration and production assets in Western Australia, including the John Brookes, Halyard/Spar and Reindeer offshore gas fields in the Carnarvon Basin and gas processing plants at Devil Creek and on Varanus Island.
