South Korea’s largest private gas provider SK E&S is facing legal action from a climate activist group alleging that it falsely advertised the green credentials of the Santos-led (ASX:STO) Barossa liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Australia.
The merger of Australia’s Santos (ASX:STO) and Papua New Guinea-focused Oil Search is now complete following shareholder approvals and the blessings of PNG.
Santos said today that it has signed a $300 million deal to sell a 12.5% interest in the Barossa project in Australia to Japan’s JERA.
Fast-moving plans for a Santos-led carbon capture and storage (CCS) project at the Bayu Undan field offshore East Timor, that would see the nation import Australia’s waste, have been described as “carbon colonialism” by independent thinktank La'o Hamutuk.
Norway's BW Offshore (OL:BWO) said that the Barossa floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel project for Santos (ASX:STO) is experiencing some cost increases due to price inflation for materials.
Santos (ASX:STO) is partnering with Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, to develop what is hoped could become the lowest cost direct air capture technology in the world.
Santos and joint venture partner Beach Energy have given final investment approval to proceed with the $165 million (A$220 million) Moomba carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in South Australia with start-up expected in 2024. But critics say Australian tax payers will be footing the bill for the emissions reductions effort and not the fossil fuel companies.
The integration of solar energy into Australia’s liquified natural gas (LNG) industry could dramatically reduce Australia’s carbon footprint while also creating thousands of additional jobs, according to the latest research by government-funded NERA (National Energy Resources Australia) and Charles Darwin University (CDU).
The ExxonMobil-led (NYSE:XOM) PNG LNG joint venture have taken a final investment decision on the Angore upstream development that will help backfill the export plant in Papua New Guinea (PNG).
Australia’s Santos (ASX:STO) delivered record quarterly sales revenue of US$1.14 billion and record quarterly free cash flow of US$359 million.
Despite a proposed carbon capture and storage (CCS) scheme, the Santos-led (ASX:STO) Barossa liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Australia, will continue to release financially risky carbon dioxide emissions onsite, onshore and across the supply chain. This makes it one of the more expensive and dirtiest gas projects in the world, according to a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).
The government of Papua New Guinea (PNG) is pushing for a bigger shareholding of the ExxonMobil-led PNG LNG export project. The latest move was triggered by the proposed merger of Santos (ASX:STO) and Oil Search (ASX:OSH), both of which hold stakes in PNG LNG.
Energy majors, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, JERA, JGC, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Santos and SK E&S, are banding together to help nations in Asia achieve lower carbon emissions by promoting natural gas. Together they have established an advocacy group called Asia Natural Gas and Energy Association (ANGEA) that will join with policymakers to find solutions to cut carbon emissions.
Multiple shale gas exploration wells are being drilled in the remote Beetaloo basin in Australia’s Northern Territory and recent results have raised expectations that the area could be on par with shale gas plays in North America. Significantly, investors could finally find out whether the shale play is commercial by the end of next year.
Australia’s Santos today announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with East Timor’s regulator ANPM to progress a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, estimated to cost $1.6 billion, at the ageing Bayu Undan field in the Timor Sea. But low returns and high complexity threaten the viability of the proposed scheme.
The government of Papua New Guinea (PNG) has raised concerns that Santos’ proposed $15.5 billion merger with Oil Search could harm national interests in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporting country.
Santos and Oil Search have agreed a merger deal that will create a A$21 billion ($15.5 billion) Asian oil and gas producer, confirming terms agreed on last month.
Potential merger partners Santos and Oil Search have extended their mutual period of due diligence for the $16 billion deal by one week to 13 September.

The diverse Asia Pacific regions offer a myriad of opportunities, ranging from decommissioning, late-life field rejuvenation, offshore wind, as well as carbon capture and storage (CCS), for adventurous UK companies.
