Santos has commenced routine maintenance activities at pilot wells at Dewhurst South in the Pilliga to ensure ongoing efficient and safe operation of the wells.

Santos has all approvals in place to undertake this work and has an access agreement in place with the Forestry Corporation of NSW.

Santos advised that this work would be taking place in its regular monthly activities update which is distributed broadly and which also appears in the Narrabri Courier.

Routine maintenance is an important part of Santos’ operations and at all times Santos uses the best engineering techniques to ensure natural gas is extracted safely without harm to the surrounding environment.
