The Santos team has received a Highly Commended award at the 2015 Northern Inland Innovation Awards held in Glen Innes on Friday night.
The state of the art water holding ponds at Leewood were entered in the “Manufacturing and Engineering” section.
The Leewood ponds are double lined ponds with advanced leak detection systems in place and were described at the awards as “scientifically advanced, secure and sustainable storage ponds.”
Santos’ General Manager of Energy NSW, Peter Mitchley, said the Leewood ponds are designed and constructed to the highest standard.
“We have employed state of the art engineering practices in building our water holding ponds at Leewood.”
“This award is a strong reflection of the high standard of all of our facilities.”
“I am incredibly proud of the team for the work they have put in to ensure the Leewood ponds are first class, but I am also incredibly proud of the way in which they go about our activities each and every day as we work to develop the Narrabri Gas Project.”
