Santos has a long track record of working respectfully with landholders in regional areas over many decades. We have agreements in place with over 300 landholders in Queensland and around 40 agreements in New South Wales. Although the majority of the Narrabri Gas Project’s operations will be located on State land in the Pilliga, there is also private land within the Project area.

We have clearly stated we will only drill on private land with the agreement of the landholder. Landholders who choose to work with us can earn additional income to help drought-proof their land, and we will work with them to develop access and work plans that don’t impact their business and lifestyle.
