Santos to supply gas to ammonia plant in West Australia

Santos has entered into new agreement with Yara Pilbara Fertilisers to supply natural gas to Yara's liquid ammonia plant on the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia, it said on June 1.

Santos will supply over 120 petajoules of natural gas over five years, starting at the completion of the current agreement with Yara in 2023.

In addition to the gas supply agreement, Santos and Yara will also work together to explore decarbonisation opportunities in Western Australia, including carbon capture and storage.

"Santos supplies around 40% of the state's total domestic demand, and we are committed to ongoing investment in developing new gas supplies in WA,” Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher said.

"As Australia's biggest domestic gas supplier and a leading Asia Pacific LNG supplier, we are committed to supplying critical fuels such as natural gas in a more sustainable way through decarbonising projects,” he added.
