About this event

Santos is actively working to reduce its carbon footprint and prepare for a lower-carbon future, including promoting the role of gas in this future. Santos has set a long-term aspiration to achieve net-zero emissions from its operations by 2050 and a target to reduce emissions across existing operations in the Cooper Basin and Queensland by 5%, by 2025.

In 2017, the Energy Solutions team was created to support the delivery of these objectives. Since the team’s inception, Santos has progressed to implementation and successful demonstration of emissions reduction in 2018 with an Australian-first installation of an autonomous solar and battery-powered beam pump. The initial installation in the Cooper Basin is now being expanded to 56 pump conversions, with the support of the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.

Following this success, Santos increased scale with installation of a 2.12 MW solar farm and associated infrastructure at the Port Bonython processing facility, making this the first hydrocarbon processing plant in Australia to be powered by a megawatt-scale renewable facility.

In parallel, Santos has also implemented a number of fuel efficiency and process optimisation projects, including waste heat recovery at Moomba and new power generation at Devil Creek.

The success of these projects provides a robust platform to support further or more complex emissions reduction project opportunities across Santos’ operations.

Ying is the Project & Strategy Lead in the Santos Energy Solutions team and has been in the team since its inception. Ying is a mechanical engineer and has worked in a variety of engineering, operations, commissioning and strategy roles at Santos. Ying won the AIE YEP SA Development Award in 2016.
