Santos and its Gladstone liquefied natural gas (GLNG) project partners will supply 30 PJ of gas to the Australian east coast domestic market over 2018 and 2019.

The gas, which would otherwise have been exported as LNG, is being sold to east coast customers including power companies.

Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher said, “Over the last few months, Santos has been working constructively with the Federal Government and our GLNG partners to supply additional gas to the east coast domestic market.

“30 PJ is a material volume of gas which could power a 228 MW power station or 330,000 homes over the two year period. 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.”

These arrangements follow recent Santos announcements for the delivery of up to 72 PJ of gas over four years into the south-east market through a swap agreement and the sale of 15 PJ to the Pelican Point Power Station in South Australia.
