Santos oil and gas exploration summary

Report summary

The oil price collapse hit Santos at a time of maximum balance sheet stress, and the ramifications have been transformational. The exploration team has been downsized and restructured and budgets have been reduced. In the short term, E&A activity will now look to maximise value by providing additional volumes to the infrastructure that is already in place. In the longer term, Santos will continue to look for growth opportunities around those core areas and for high value gas targets in other locations.
