Environment and Water

Santos GLNG represents a major investment in a cleaner energy source for the future.

Throughout the world, natural gas is increasingly being used as a reliable and cleaner energy source, as gas has the lowest carbon intensity of the fossil fuel alternatives.

Gas is up to 70% cleaner than the traditional energy source of coal. Every million tonnes of LNG that replaces coal is the equivalent to taking approximately 900,000 cars off the road. Gas is also a vital enabler of intermittent, renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar.

Our environmental commitments

Santos GLNG is bound by, and committed to meeting, some of the strictest regulations in the world.  

Our approach isn’t just defined by complying with regulations. Our commitment to safety, for communities, our people and the environment is part of our DNA. 

We are committed to:

  • Minimising our environmental footprint and acting in accordance with the Federal and State Government conditions placed on our Project.
  • The protection of water resources.
