Australian LNG player Santos said it had entered into a new gas supply agreement with the Walyering joint venture and plans to deliver the supplies to its domestic sales gas portfolio in Western Australia.
Strike Energy and Talon operate the Walyering field located in the Perth Basin.
Santos said in a statement it would buy a total of 36.5 petajoules of gas from the Walyering field over five years, starting in the first half of 2023.
The agreement is facilitated by Santos’ existing customer relationships and pipeline transport positions, with gas to be delivered into Santos’ WA domestic sales gas portfolio.
Santos managing director and CEO, Kevin Gallagher, said in the statement that Santos continues to support Western Australian industry through the delivery of “competitively priced” domestic natural gas.
“We are delighted to sign this agreement with the Walyering joint venture and bring this gas to market in a timely manner, reinforcing our position as WA’s biggest supplier of domestic gas,” Gallagher said.
