About the Project Owner

A proudly Australian company, Santos is a leading supplier of natural gas, a fuel for the future providing cleaner energy to improve the lives of people in Australia and Asia. Santos is already Australia’s biggest domestic gas supplier and aims to be a leading Asia-Pacific LNG supplier.

For over 65 years, Santos has been working in partnership with local communities, providing jobs and business opportunities, and safely and sustainably developing Australia’s natural gas resources.

Santos aims to create positive long-term impacts in the communities where we live and work, by providing local employment, training, education and enterprise opportunities. Sharing the positive economic and social benefits of natural gas is critical to ensuring a sustainable future for both Santos and the community.

Keeping Santos’ supply chain local is important to the economic, environmental, social and operational sustainability of Santos’ projects. Hiring and procuring locally is important to Santos because it encourages:

  • A reliable, local supply chain that can be flexible and resilient in times of uncertainty
  • Long-term socio-economic benefits for smaller regional communities
  • Upskilling and educational opportunities
  • Local suppliers to source from other local companies.


The Project

The Darwin LNG plant (DLNG) is a single train liquefaction and storage facility located at Wickham Point on Darwin Harbour, Northern Territory, Australia. DLNG is currently receiving gas from the Bayu-Undan field in the Timor Sea and converts it into LNG. DLNG was commissioned in 2006 and has a design life to 2027. Bayu-Undan produced its first gas in 2004 and is now approaching end of field life.

Barossa is an offshore gas and light condensate project 300 kilometres north of Darwin and will provide a new source of gas to the DLNG facility once supply from Bayu-Undan has been exhausted. 

The DLNG Life Extension Project (the Project) seeks to utilise the shutdown window created by Bayu-Undan end of life to prepare the DLNG facility for backfill from the Barossa field, by undertaking several brownfield work packages.


Procurement Approach

Santos intends to undertake a self-execute approach and act as the procurement entity for the Project. Santos will engage the market to secure the goods and/or services required with an emphasis on engaging businesses local to the Northern Territory where technically and commercially feasible.

As the contracting strategy for the Project develops further, more information regarding the upcoming tenders and procurement activities may be shared through this portal.

Where Santos awards a major contract, the contact details of appointed contractors will be also shared via this portal to facilitate connection with local businesses or job seekers.

The Dorado oil field contains 140 mmbbls (2C, 100%) of oil. It is located in the Bedout basin, approximately 150km north of Port Hedland in Petroleum permit WA-437-P.  The project will be developed jointly in line with the equity split of Santos Offshore Pty Ltd 80% and Carnarvon Petroleum Pty Ltd 20%.

The offshore resource would be developed with up to 16 platform wells drilled by a jack-up drilling rig. These would be connected back to an adjacent Floating Production, Storage and Offloading facility (FPSO) moored in 95 metres of water above the Dorado field.

The proposed FPSO unit will have processing facilities to stabilise and store the oil and compress and re-inject gas to the reservoir.

The Bayu-Undan Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Project targets the capture of up to 10 Mtpa of CO2 at a Darwin hub – initially from the Darwin LNG facility (DLNG), with potential future expansion to proximal 3rd party. Captured CO2 will be transported to, and stored in, the offshore Bayu-Undan reservoir (in Timor Leste waters).
