Santos Secures Gas Supply Contract From Moly Metals
Santos, engaged in the production, transportation and marketing of hydrocarbons, has secured a new gas supply contract with Moly Metals Australia for its Spinifex Ridge molybdenum and copper mine located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Under the contract, Santos will supply approximately 33 petajoules of gas over six years commencing in mid-2010. The gas will be supplied from the offshore John Brookes gas field, processed at the East Spar gas processing facilities on the Varanus Island, and transported to the mine through the Dampier Bunbury pipeline.
David Knox, CEO of Santos, said: "Santos has again demonstrated a willingness to invest significant capital to ensure that the expanding energy demands of the Western Australia domestic gas market are met."
