Santos’ aim is to create enduring and mutually beneficial relationships with Aboriginal communities across all of our Australian operations including the Narrabri Gas Project.
The Gomeroi People’s Native Title claim covers the parts of the Pilliga in which we are seeking to work. We respect and acknowledge native title rights and interests in the area, meet regularly with the Gomeroi registered claimants and are working towards an agreement with them.
Santos understands that the Aboriginal communities of the north west of NSW have rich and diverse histories.
Santos is working with local and regional Aboriginal communities and organisations including the Gomeroi Applicants, and Local Aboriginal Lands Councils. We aim to ensure that Aboriginal people in Narrabri and surrounding regions are able to share the benefit of a successful project, whether that be through employment, training, education or other initiatives.
